I'm experimenting with the export capability added in 3.7 that creates a p2f file from the currently installed set of features.

This looks very promising!

Side note: The access to meta data from the various repositories is painfully slow, I just waited approx. 15 min. for the answer "Cannot statisfy dependency: ...". From looking at the p2f file repositories are listed multiply over and over, so maybe downloading the same meta data over and over again explains the long wait, but that's a side issue.

Right now I'm curious, whether any of the other tools can take a p2f file as their input. I think the following would be totally cool:
- create a feature from a p2f
- extract features and repository URLs into a contribution for the b3aggregator
Et voila: you have a mirrored update site with all those features that you have prototypically installed in your IDE.

Has anyone thought about this / worked on this already?

These are indeed cool enhancements. You should definitely file a bug so those are not lost.
At this the enhancements we discussed around p2f are:
- have the director take p2f
- extend the p2f to describe a complete install
