Something like Apache Extras might be of interest (though afaict it's really just a branded
google code).

At the very least I think specific couchapps (implementations of wikis, blogs etc) should
be encouraged to go there for hosting. I'm not sure couchdb-lucene, couchapp itself or geocouch
(and other future plugins) are entirely suitable, but I guess it depends on how apache extras
evolve over time.
