Need for a RTC Template library ?

Having discussed RTC initial user experience with several colleagues, there seems to be a common thread - process customization. Everyone likes the ability of the tool to be customized - and everyone has to do it, because the provided templates rarely do exactly what you want.

I see parallels here between RTC and the popular Joomla! CMS (Content Management System).

Both RTC and Joomla! provided a flexible framework and both have just a few templates provided with the basic installation.

The Joomla! community has done a great job at providing numerous examples of well-documented templates for every occasion, whereas this has yet to be developed by the RTC community (as far as i can tell, anyway). The basic templates provided are poorly documented and it's difficult to compare features of each template.

I myself started by creating a project, based on the 'scrum' template, but after finally wandering around the other templates I came across the "plan item" workitem inside the 'eclipse way'. With it's associated workflow, I think this would be a useful addition to my process management arsenal (so i'll probably be cloning it).

Wouldn't it be nice if we had a way of collecting, comparing and contrasting process templates, like they do in the Joomla! community ?

...or does this exist already ?
