When I started coding clojure a couple of years ago, I went through a
process of rediscovering the state of the art in Emacs even though I
have been using it for 20 years; not just the Clojure specific stuff,
but things like magit.

In terms of tooling, I would argue strongly that package.el and more
recently MELPA stable have made a significant difference to the
community. It is now incredibly easy for me to update one of my
packages, do a release and have it in peoples hands.

I write code in the first instance for my own benefit. Decreasing the
additional effort that I need to make to release it to others is  an
important contribution.

I am with Nic; I think it's already happening.
