I mean we can't simply run a "git pull" to update the copy of the repository on the user's computers, because git is probably not installed there. The entire resource collection must be redownloaded including files that were not modified since the last time, unless we keep track of the updates and install only what the users wants. It's not a show stopper but it's a bit inefficient in my opinion.

So that not means easy automated process of installation.
The user doesn't use directly or even see the database/spreadsheet file by itself. It's is a single file that is downloaded regularly in the background by the installer and stays in the background.
The user should only have to interact with a searchable list of scripts sorted by category with buttons to install/update/uninstall, and a few settings (like auto-update on/off).

As for the remaining scripts in the stash, shouldn't we just host a copy of them in the repostory? This way the installer would not have to mess around with zip files it has unpack automatically.
