A place to honor the late software engineers

Hello HN. Due to the recent loss of one good colleague and engineer, I was thinking on building a site to honor the achievements of deceased engineers.

We all built things that are meant to last in some way or another and just because you don't update your Github profile anymore it doesn't mean that it should be forgotten.

I am thinking that the site would group their software repositories and possibly Linkedin/Twitter profiles.

Do you think this would be something good to have? Any help/suggestion is much appreciated.

Would be crazy if when you work on some kind of open source hosted on github that commits from the deceased have some kind of emblem. A bummer to see but maybe some way to give that anonymous code some kind of immortality.
