That flow of steps is very close to what I need.
The scripts in
are mostly shell or Python, but I'm flexible,
as long as the scripts run under FreeBSD.

I think you mentioned one problem about starting something, and then
running out of time to finish working on it.
This problem is very common. :(

Hopefully if we have multiple people working on something and
collaborating, we can get something going that many people can
maintain and enhance in future.

I would say go ahead and provide your script via GitHub pull request,
unless you want to clean it up a little before providing it.
