Contribution: I would like to, but I do not have much time to devote 
to this, or many other projects I am interested in.

I would find it easier to contribute to a small modules and filters 
than a complete assemblage of modules, because it takes less time 
to figure out how a module works than the complete assemblage.

Here are some sample module tasks:

Output a single package's source code URL's as text
Output a single package's dependencies as text
Output a single package's installation commands as text
Output a list of packages that have already been installed

You can then build these up into a local installer, then build a 
remote installer on top of that.
