At this point I think that we can start to talk about technical stuff 
like roadmap, tasks, volunteers recruitment and so on :)

The basic steps, IMHO, can be:
1. Identify which externals to include in the repo (for linux users, the 
folder /usr/lib/pd-extended/extra can be a good starting point)
2. Identify which externals need to be compiled (some of them, as far as 
I rememer, are not "true" external library, but a pd patch 
[intrinsically cross-platform??])
3. Identify which externals are mainteined/unmaintained, and eventually, 
contact the maintainers just to say: "hello, we are creating a shared 
repo of externals. Are you interested? and so on..."
4. Prioritize (i.e. most used extensions have the priority).
5. Assign tasks

In that context, a web platform can help to accomplish this preliminary 
steps. For example github (that has a project wiki), or Azendoo (free 
-and simple!- collaborative project management), to name a few. I'm not 
an expert of this platform, but I use github for small projects and 
IMHO, Azendoo (or something like that) it can help a lot for 
discussions, task management and so on, without flooding the mailing list :)

Here is just my thoughts... any idea/suggestion/alternative are 
appreciated! :)
