As people have already mentioned there is an enormous body of Lua code
written for World of Warcraft addons. The default user interface for
World of Warcraft can be found in a mirror on Github [1]. In addition
the two major addon sites are WowInterface [2] and Curse [3]. In
addition there are development sites that may make the code a bit
easier to obtain. WowInterface has both Git [4] and SVN [5]
integration. Curse is fed by both WowAce [6] and Curseforge [7], which
have a mix of SVN, Mercurial and Git repositories depending on the

I have close ties with both websites and could speak with either if
