In my spare time I would like to build a web application / web service which is specially designed for Free Pascal / Lazarus users. This app would run in the cloud and would be free of charge. I have no idea which service you would like to see, so I am asking for votes ...

About the current ideas:

1.) build script generator - a service which generates required files for a cross-platform build tool and continuous integration
This web service would allow users to configure a basic workflow (for example compile test classes, run tests, compile app classes, create binary distribution ZIP), and choose the target platform(s). The web application builds all required script files which can be used with Apache Ant, Hudson, Jenkins, Bamboo or TeamCity. Developers only need to download the script files and are ready to use them locally to build their project. No source code would be stored on the web service, so it can be used for closed-source projects as well.

2.) package repository - a service which can be used to host packages, including your own
This web service would host package files for the already existing build tools FPMake and FPpkg. See: http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/FPMake and http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/fppkg

3.) usage data tracker - a service which stores anonymous usage statistics
This idea is inspired by the usage data trackers in the NetBeans and Eclipse IDEs for the Java platform. Application developers would be able to add a feature to their Free Pascal / Lazarus applications which collects and posts usage data to this central web service.
