Chiefr integration - distributed contribution model for searx #1029
I'd like to try to decentralize the contribution model of searx because of the following reasons:
I've created a tool (https://github.com/asciimoo/chiefr) to support the above idea.
Please comment, if you have any thoughts about the idea or you want to be a maintainer of a segment of searx, and I'll update the maintainers file. Segment can be any set of files (except empty set) in the repo, even a single engine or just a function.
It's totally up to us. If a maintainer receives or writes some code which adds value to searx, then she/he can submit it to the main repo.
Yes, that would be the proper way in the future, but I think, it's not necessary to put any extra effort to change previous contributions to fit to this model, so it's ok here.
