I, for one, would be favour of this.

I'm very new to monit, I've found it to be incredibly useful, I've
installed it on all our servers and can't imagine a scenario where it
wouldn't be useful.

However, getting it installed and configured wasn't a walk in the park.
In the same way that puppet and chef recipes are shared, I think it
makes a lot of sense to share monit checks.

I'd also love to see a web interface to write new checks. A few
tickboxes for each check, then a custom rolled check is output. I'm
thinking specifically of setting mail server values, http protocol tests
and so on.

I'd be happy to contribute towards the above.

Love & joy - Callum.
