We have quite a collection of community maintained comments, should we the AU community provide this as a service to our users so we can make it easier to maintain and for newer contributors to use?

We need a place to host the json file.

I've set this up:

They are available on github here, so if you have:

A. A additional comment that you want added after it's been added to that meta post

B. You notice a tyop or something.

Fork, and submit a pull request. Or ping me on chat, and I'll give you a hand.

To use this repo, add the following as a remote source in the script:

https://raw.github.com/AskUbuntu/ProFormaComments/master/comments.jsonp

And then it'll work. Happy commenting!

I have sent an email to all of the moderators with details for an FTP account that they can use to set this up.

...if you're a moderator and you didn't get the email - then it's because I dug your email address up from an unusual place and probably got an old one :)
