Bazel Pantry: Catalog for Skylark rule sets #1046
Now that we have moved all the Skylark rule sets out of the main repository into separate repositories, it would be great to have a searchable catalog/index of Skylark rule sets, similar in flavor to NPM, Bower, Atom, Crates.io, Maven Central, etc.
Each page would have the name and description of the rule set, links to the rule set's documentation/website and repo, and a snippet containing the rules that one would need to add to the
On a related note, it is great to see how many rule sets and languages we have so far. :) I'm sure there are many other repos elsewhere on GitHub, and having such a catalog of Skylark rules would be extremely helpful for discoverability.

It is not clear at all to me that these two problems should be solved using the same solution.
For 1., we started to discuss this on the mailing list
For 2., we have to clarify how this relates to the Build Encyclopedia. In my opinion, listing Bazel rules is exactly what the Encyclopedia should do. We have #3255 to track this.
