I'm thinking of something much more lightweight - e.g. a GitHub repository
and associated website, nothing more. I don't see ISO processes, or any
frozen release versions of such a collection of links, as being of use to
this sort of thing - but it would be important for it to be easy and quick
for someone to make a one-off contribution (e.g. someone writing a psABI
for one architecture could make one pull request to add links to it, and
would probably never contribute to the list again).
