Was mostly thinking it’s nice to indicate some way in the name that the contents of the repo aren’t authored by the bro team.  Doesn’t have to be a suffix, could be “bro-community-packages” or “community-packages”.

To me, a URL like that has a subtle implication that the packages are authored by the “bro” account, but that could be easy to clarify in the repo description: “These are packages contributed by the community”.

I like the “packages” + “package-manager” combo that Johanna suggests.
