Why not create general rules, specifications, unified structure and
build system for these libraries, use package manager (e.g. epm [1])
and let everyone contribute under the umbrella of one main project?

I.e. there's a elib1 project, which is a set of core libraries, and
other libraries would be dependencies of it. If someone is willing to
become the part of the whole maintainer of the meta project checks if
it conforms to the rules. If it does then he adds this subproject as a
dependency to elib1.
