Some extensions were included in the binaries, installed automatically
as part of the main product install.  They look like integrated parts
of the UI.  You can see Presentation Manager in Impress, under
Tools/Minimize Presentation.  I'm pretty sure the Presenter Console
requires two displays, so I can't see it.

The question is how we take the extensions in standalone form and put
them in other common repositories?

Would this be analogous to what Java-based projects do with Maven?
They build and release a larger source and binary distribution for
their release, and that release distribution might contain several
related libraries.  And after the release is made a volunteer uploads
the individual libraries to the central maven repository,

How is that done with Maven central repository?  Does the project do
that officially?  Or someone just does that individually?
