This would definately be something worthwhile, and not too hard to set
In Squeak, there are update servers.  I've not looked into the framework
for it, but I don't suppose it'd be hard to adapt (perhaps it can
the Update Server and put a little package browser in the Squeak image
that would show the changesets available on the Update Server, organized
into categories, with a little description for each changeset.  Uploads
could be similar to an FTP site. where you stick it in an /incoming
folder, and the admin puts it where it belongs.

I would be willing to try and implement this if someone has a machine
with a permanent 'net connection that it could sit on.
