Tracking prior open-source contributions

For the many other open-source contributors and developers out there, I'm wondering if anybody has a complete list of all works they have created. It came up recently that such a list would be useful in asserting my own prior copyrights in any future employment, and avoiding claims that I'd taken any code [1].

For version control systems are still accessible, this isn't too much of a problem, but for past historical creations, this is a lot harder. Has anybody else done it? To what level of detail did your listing go?

Here's my initial broad listing(I'm going to come back often to fill it in more)

I realized that this does form a sort of portfolio of work that I've done, and it shows just how flexible I am, esp. if I went and wrote this up better including a blurb about some of the larger or more standalone projects I've done.

Additional sources to look up this stuff are:

(list last updated 2015/06/20, partially)

(new update in progress as of 2018/04/26)

And I'm sure that I'm missing many more.
