The other question is whether every module submitted to Alkacon is
made public or whether they test it for a while, play around with it,

That's a question maybe the authors of the weather and news modules
could answer once they uploaded their work to alkacon.

By now, as you can see, there is no 3rd party module available. I'll
add a link to their upload facility on my site.
