I don't think we need a separate sourceforge project for this --
I can easily create a pmwiki-recipes module within the existing
pmwiki sourceforge project for this.

However, I don't like the idea that recipes might live in two different
locations (some in cvs, some in the Cookbook uploads directory) --
I tihnk that just means more synchronization and overhead, not less.  
And I'm definitely not a fan of saying that someone has to know CVS 
(and be a committer) before they can contribute a recipe.

All that said, if there are enough people who want to use CVS
or subversion as an additional place to store/manage recipes, I'll
see about setting up the repository for it.  But to continue
to make things accessible to new wiki administrators, I think we
should continue to publish .tgz and/or .zip packages for download
directly from the recipe pages, and cannot rely on them having 
(or being comfortable with) a cvs or subversion client.
