I am really interested in a cookbook-svn-repository (although I am more
a receipe user than a receipe author). A 'skin/' directory would be

Are you aware of the svn:externals property ? This can be used to
create links to external subversion repositories. Using this feature,
you only need to set up your own subversion repository, create a
'Cookbook' folder and add links to all the receipes you are interested in.
# the general set-up would be something like this:
> svn checkout https://my-subversion-server.com/trunk/MyHomePage
> cd MyHomePage
> svn mkdir Cookbook
> svn propedit svn:externals Cookbook
# an editor pops up allowing you to specify all the receipes you are
# the format is something like this:
# now you only need to save the changes and to exit the editor
# and commit with 'svn commit'
Now, you just need to 'svn update' and all receipes are updated

You could probably use the svn:externals property for this problem, too.
I hope, that encourages you to set up a cookbook/skin subversion
