Under normal cirsumstances I would agree, but this is FTB and it's hardly normal no matter how hard we try. What I mean is, certain elements may have to be removed or restricted for server quality since not everything plays nice together or some items when used incorrectly can cause server wide problems, both with stability or with misuse of that mod. Rubber Boots was another example.
I don't think that we should try to find a pack that is perfect otherwise we'll end up having to make our own.
That said, I did see something in the launcher that mentions Private Pack. I've not yet looked into what that it, but I'd hope it would give us a change to decide what we want on the server then create a private pack, share the code with the division and let the launcher do all the setup for us. It's probably not how the private packs works but it would be nice.
I'm not sure on the distribution rules but we could also setup at the least a self extracting winrar/zip file that if you choose the path of the FTB folder it will put all of the additional mods we need (when chosen) in the correct location to help TOGers get setup?
