Ability to "Fork" modpacks

A lot of people end up playing minecraft modpacks with friends, and need to have all of them manually make changes to it if they want to play it a little differently or add additional mods required by a certain server.
I believe the ability to create an unlisted copy of a modpack that can only be accessed through its URL (to prevent spam!), with subtle changes would significantly improve user experience in that regard. This would enable me to share my modified modpacks with the friends I play with, and enable modded minecraft servers to provide a slightly different pack for their players.

    You could just manually export whatever changes you made then send it to your friends. Those files are usually only a handful of megabytes - can even fit on a Discord message for moderately sized packs.
