Potentially the Open Access Button team might be interested in this.

We'd like to make repositories a big part of the tool. We're currently
tossing around ideas (some concrete some not) around leveraging databases
like openDOAR (and the repositories indexed there) as a way to give our
users access to papers, and building in ways to promote researchers
depositing papers. One of our dev team is also wanting to create a way for
authors to submit open access versions of papers directly to us - which, if
it worked would almost create a repository-type system.
