The entire Owl userland is maintained in a somewhat similar way:

As for a system for add-on functionality, we don't maintain one yet.
You may add stuff into the two source trees and build it in the same
way as the official Owl userland, or you may build additional RPM
packages independently from the rest of Owl (see rpminit(1) on Owl
for an easy way to setup building RPM packages under an arbitrary
non-root account).

We might add an official collection of Owl add-ons, -- for stuff which
doesn't qualify for the main Owl for whatever reason.  We might then
extend our build environment to allow for handling of such add-ons
separately from our core packages.
