well .. how about formalizing the process of "from submission to code
base"? I mean there could be some sort of separate "entry-pile", where you
could submit any type of component that would be considered safe from legal
perspective. From there - three ways of progress would be feasible -

1) someone will catch-on, and start maintaining (trackable)
2) someone will fork, modify original sources while sticking to the
original idea + start maintaining (again trackable)
3) no-one will do any of above, and component moves to "trash" after
certain period (again trackable)

this way, a lot of "fresh" - potentially incoming stuff wouldn't be burned
by difficult entry process and only beasts with high-survival value would
make it into actual code base.

Your thoughts?
