I haven't understood very well your question, anyway there's already a package manager for emacs, called ELPA,

A part from this I've found the best configuration/modularization work done in the emacs-starter-kit packages (it uses ELPA extensively).

Hope it can help a bit...

Yes sorry there were no real questions, I was just wondering if you had
some good advices in maintaing external packages using different OS.

I practiced finally with the git submodule and it looks exactly what I
So it's very easy to upgrade packages that are already using git, and
they keep the same version that is on the server.

For the others that don't use git maybe I could
- mirror them on github updating from time to time (there are already
 many of these mirrors on github)
- add the mirrors as submodule

But like this I risk to end up having too many project, but I don't see
any other clean way to accomplish this...
