Distributed equivalent to :Load Patches

I was thinking about the development model in use when I was a Symbolics and I
think it would be a wonderful project for someone to figure out how to
implement a www enabled equivalent to the LispM system system.
LispOS users should be able to type "Load Patches" and their system would then
go to my system (or a mirror) to find patches to oomph; Mike McDonald's system
(or a mirror) to find patches to clim; etc. I could also authorize certain
users to make patches directly to oomph which other users's patches would
require vetting before becoming part of the system.
Clearly this is (a) a large difficult system to create, and (b) the sooner
it's created the better. I know I'm underqualified to design such a thing, but
if someone out there wants to design an important high-level pieces of the
LispOS, it sure would be useful to figure out what facilities this would need
underneath as soon as possible.
This would provide a whole new approach to distributed software development.
