Is this "deps" folder specific to each project, or does is there some
foundation-wide folder for this kind of resources?

Just for setting the context: the case of the resources for which I'm
looking for a home is particular, in that its Terms Of Use contain a
clause which enumerates precisely which kinds of changes are allowed.
Those resources are not software, but data (which is why I didn't called
them "dependency"). I don't know if many other Apache projects depend as
strongly on a particular set of data, but I suspect that this use case
may happen more often in the future if the Foundation hosts an
increasing amount of projects on topic like geospatial, medicine, etc.
