Personally, I also see a very large convenience in using it like the following:
I’ve seen a lot of people post who want to make mods with little programming experience. Instead of getting discouraged and quitting–or posting a massive obscure error message/code samples on the forums–they could just link their repository.
You can report issues, solve them, add things to someone else’s mod…
That’s just a couple examples though. Food for thought. Just wanted to get this out their in the minds of future modders for it’s incredible amount of uses.
