Have you seen https://complib.org/ ? It is excellent. Could Graham
John be co-opted and CompLib be developed as the new official home of
the methods collections?

Could it be combined with the composition collections at
http://ringing.org/ to create one home for methods and compositions on
the web, developed collaboratively on GitHub (see
https://github.com/cccbr )

Teamwork needed!
