Just a note: remember to look for licences. Only extensions that
explicitly state one can be uploaded, unless you have the author's
permission. For others, only links should be used.
If extensions are not connected to their author's account, I think links
make a lot more sense, because when the extension is updated on the
author's page, nobody is going to update the files on the Inkscape
website. They'll get outdated quickly.
If the author uploads the extensions, updating is their responsibility
:) If you do, it's yours - that's why I have not done this previously.

It depends if what you have is links to extensions, or if you intend to
upload the actual extension packages themselves.
If you have files, the process of getting them all uploaded is simpler
as you can drag+drop the files onto the blue "Submit Resource" button
on the website, it's designed to be able to do multiple uploads for
things like photos from an event. They won't be published, but if you
upload them to a gallery (drop them onto the submit button inside one
of your own gallery pages, instead of the generic listing page.
As you edit them, you should be able to save and automatically go to
the next one, allowing you to move through the items one by one
There's no similar thing for links though. ☹
