There are so many CBC mods out there, that it's getting hard to keep track of them all. When the community was smaller, it was no problem keeping track of all of the projects, people post them on the community forums, and they can usually be followed on github. The same is true today, but I fear that as we grow, and new projects are created, and as new people join the community, it will become harder and harder for people to keep up.
If a new member hears "CBCLua" or "CBCJVM", there's a good chance that they will become confused. I propose that we have a page on the community site where the moderators can add the names of projects and links to their wikis, important documentation, version repository, etc. This way, if they hear one of these terms, they can look it up on the list of CBC mods.

Yeah, you're right, it probably is a bit hard to keep track of them already. We'll look into a better way to organize them.

Was this ever implemented? I'd be very interested to look through all of them

It was not implemented yet; YAC has been extremely busy. I'll post a reminder to the full YAC and see if we can find the time to do it.

Thanks for the reminder!

To be honest, there aren't a whole lot of CBC mods out there. Most of them were either discontinued when their developers graduated, or were adopted by KIPR. So while it would be nice to have a list in one place, I don't foresee it being particularly helpful.

CBCJVM allows you to use Java, a modern OOP language, in eclipse, a modern IDE. I hope your desires are met at this year's GCER.

Thanks,
