I think this is already happening (heck, I've even got a private mcidasv repo 
on GitHub that has some cursory maven integration).

You pretty much say that "canonical visad is from <location here>" and 
everything kinda works out to be a non-issue. Developers would have their own, 
100% complete visad repository. Someone could make any changes they want 
*within* their copy of the repository, but that's (essentially) the end of it, 
until they decide to share their changes. Git/GitHub have some really nice 
features for sharing changes between users individual repos.
