This repository was founded as a central hub to a list of PowerShell modules that people know/use. Each module has a file describing its name, basic information the module, as well as one or more blog posts/videos from people that have written about or used them.
This way we can reduce friction when people are starting out or are trying to solve similar problems
When a new module appears on the PowerShell scene it can be difficult to advertise and gain mindshare among developers/end users who could be interested in it. There are also times when difficulties arise in finding if a good tool exists or not, if its up to date, and how relevant it is in the community.
This happened to me recently: I went to google, found a PowerShell Gallery script, and after checking that the script didn't work with some particulars I did a further research and found (google result's - page 3 or 4) a comment on a forum pointing to the GitHub repository. Guess what? The problem I was having were already addressed. ;-)
Are you a module owner? Are you writing something new? Do you contribute to a module? Share it! The ones I know and use could be very different from the ones you know and use! Why not share?
How can this help me?
