I've been going around today advocating use of a revision control system for many projects, and it is all the more important for projects like this with multiple developers. It will be chaos if there is no organization, but if the people involved familiarized with a strong VCS such as Git, Mercurial or Bazaar they an easily handle multiple developers in a project (however, it would not have the same consistency as traditional software project due to lack of native support).

There should be an organizational leader, such as someone who hosts the repository, manages the thread, since there can only be one of those, but due to the transparency of a VCS the community will not see one person as the project spearhead.
