Very, very good idea!

> creating something called "Riak Function Contrib." When launched,
> it'll be a home for community-contributed MapReduce and Pre- and
> Post-Commit functions. The goal is to have Riak users submit code they
> have used in their own apps and projects to build out a comprehensive
> collection of functions such that, when a new user needs/wants to use
> M/R or or Hook Functions in their app, they can browse the soon-to-be
> vast number of functions that are already available and tested by
> The code will live on GitHub and there will be a sister-site with an
> overview of what Riak Function Contrib is all about. When the repo and
> site are up and running, code submission will be as simple as forking
> the repo and sending a pull request. Using the code from the repo will
> be just as easy.

> want to hear from you. Shoot me an email and I'll give you the details
> on how to get involved.
> And of course, thanks for being a part of Riak.
