agree about the ambiguity.. didn't notice it before...

i didn't like the "Resources" term either..

i think this is an important point:
"share" means that you give something back to the typo3 project.. and you just don't "take" something for your own business..
to here could go many ideas and ways someone can share his work, his time, his resources, his creativity to help TYPO3

yes i know that skins and templates are exts.. but if in the "share" section we do a little gallery of them, with a simple "propose a new one!"
someone could be inspired to create one!

i think the direction typo3.org should go is really to easy the research of the right resources and
  to show how funny and good is to help developing the TYPO3 project itself.

going to dinner :)
