All you need to "create a repository" is drive space on the web. 

a)  I've got some templates, colour palettes, and a dictionary or two
for OOo out there somewhere on the web. The issue I found with free
sites, is that the content doesn't always stay there. The issue with
both gratis and paid sites, is promoting the goodies.

b)  Whilst an individual can create their own repository, once there are
twenty or so personal repositories, nobody is going to know where to
find anything, unless somebody spends one or two weeks a month, working
40 hour weeks, doing nothing but locating what is available that week
from which site.

c)  Ideally, there would be a place where people could upload their LibO
content, where it could be vetted for copyright and other legal stuff,
prior to being made available for public distribution.

Not just templates, but extensions, colour palettes, dictionaries,
clipart, and whatever other goodies people throw onto LibO.

OK, clipart probably should be sent to

[Now trying to remember the legal issue that led to the templates I
created not being distributable from ]
