There is no consensus required nor a decency check...
Well, I can imagine it could happen in the future. I'm not pushing it, being mostly against it, but I understood some here had children playing with Oolite.
That can of worms is not likely to be opened. As far as I can see, either reaching consensus between us all on what should or shouldn't be in there, or accepting that a chosen few are curating OXPs for the rest of us, is pretty nigh impossible and counter to the spirit of this BB. This spirit so far also succeeds in keeping everything "decent", whatever that means.

Edit: fixed the quote

One feature that could be useful - provide an 'OXZ auto-update' option, or at least provide an explicit list of 'Installed OXZs that have a newer version available' (yes, I realise this is achieved by clicking 'Manage Expansion Packs' / 'Update expansion list', then comparing the Installed vs Available version strings - what I'm suggesting is a list that removes this monkey work).
Already exists in 1.82:

Does the OXZ manager collect data?
The only information sent by the OXZ manager to the Oolite servers is the version of Oolite being run, which is needed in case the use of manifest fields in the manager changes (as it did slightly between 1.80 and 1.82) to send compatible information to older versions.

There are various extra bits of information it might be useful to collect, but they don't feel worth the effort needed to set up a bunch of extra privacy notices and settings in the manager.
