Just had a quick look and things that I notice are:

1. Keep your source in a VCS like gitlab/github/etc?
2. It would be nice of you to put a copyright notice in the source so
users know what they may do with the source.
3. Please do create a proper package for it so you can publish it to

As someone who's worked at multiple proprietary software companies,
having a roadmap doesn't magically make code happen.
