Whoever is in charge of deciding who publishes what on the repository
server could maybe keep a (few) text list(s) of repositories and puts
that (those) list itself in its own repository so people can check it
out when they want?

My impression is that APIs like these are not easy to build, and take
some time and input from various sources to get right. Perhaps you could
take notes as you proceed with your project?

(And I'm thinking that things work better when those who perceive the
need are the ones who build them. Which, come to think of it, is one of
the reasons I'm not such a great programmer, seeing as I am a pretty
hard-core minimalist. But that's OT here.)
