It would be great if the code was integrated into Evergreen master! I have been searching high and low and failed to come across the your code and some others who may be interested in using it might find themselves in exactly the same situation.

Erhan, there is a dokuwiki page that details how to contribute code: Maybe it will be helpful (especially in case you have not contributed code yet).

A side note - we have developed a module to pull external content from our Czech provider and also shared it with the community (, meaning that now it is very easy for everyone interested to find it and virtually just switch it on :-).

I think adding it as a feature in a future release would be a good thing.  While not a make or break feature it's a part of the open ecosystem that Evergreen users ten to adopt and certainly a welcome enhancement IMO.

    Hi Jason,

    If you mean in terms of use and rights, no there is no reason,
    maybe we can call it "thoughtlessness". As you can notice it is
    just open source and it will be great if it the community embraces

    Is there any reason that this has not been shared with the
    community as a potential enhancement?

    I think this would be a good feature for stock Evergreen to have,
    and then your institution would not be solely responsible for
    maintaining it.
