During our sprint last week, Rémi Emonet and Raniere Silva started 
exploring the idea of using off-the-shelf package managers to manage 
lesson material [1,2] so that something like:

$ conda install barba-12-steps-navier-stokes

will do what it should.  I'm really excited by the idea, and hope to put 
some time into it once September rolls around - if people are 
interested, I'll send a note to this list once work gets under way.
