Bcfg2 Recipes are in the source code control repo in version 2 but sharing is not easy, group names need to be standardized first.

Cfengine Promises are shared through the Cfengine company which vets and standardizes them in the Community Open Promise Body Library:http://www.cfengine.org/manuals/CfengineStdLibrary.html

Chef Recipes are very actively shared at http://cookbooks.opscode.com/
