Samuel & Jatin,

Rather than make a new Django app to replace a PHP app, please
consider the previous New ASLO written by Sam Parkinson with help from
many of us here.


This work started around 16th April 2014, and the last commit was on
18th July 2015.

It is written in Python, uses Flask, Docker, git, and has a workflow
that is very close to what Samuel has defined.

Instead of a separate GitHub organisation, Sam designed a registry


This uses JSON metadata derived in part from the .info files.

An aslo-bot was responsible for detecting releases in activity
repositories and adjusting the registry.

The New ASLO is already integrated with the Social Help discourse

Chris has reminded us, the New ASLO already has translations;

So please explain why Sam's work cannot be used?
