Hi, :-)

I'd also been thinking about uploading templates to the Alfresco site,
where I was hoping the docs team would like to play an active part in
maintaining them.

It would be so much simpler if there were a way for people to submit their templates on the website with all of the pertinent data -- especially with contact email/website. This would certainly ease the submission/migration of templates.

As for the migration, Alex has suggested that we be careful in what we migrate and to closely examine the templates' licences to see if this is clearly permissible. Also, I have found that many of the templates lack contact information. It is then very difficult to get author permission to migrate the template to our site if contact information is not available or out of date.

We have the chance of starting off the wiki or website template section the right way at this point. We should avoid the feeling of piling each and every template found everywhere without really examining the implications of the licences. IMHO, there should be an established process to do this. Contacting the author is obviously the best option. Again, even better, if the authors could somehow submit their templates on the site itself.

The LibreOffice name and website, in my mind, is too important of a project to fall into trouble over licensing issues. The same would most likely apply to extension licences.
