Its the synergies I'd recommend really emphasising. I.e. given all these 
different efforts, it would be nice to some how have them amplifying 
each other.

What we had in mind was a much more open approach, building off the contribution mechanisms already supported by GitHub. The thing about linking back to projects (not that it's in any way a bad thing to do so) is that those sources might move or go away in time. I think there's great virtue to copies, especially when those copies are versioned and can be updated. I also think this might serve as an alternate archive for project data.
