I want to be able to store the "manage external users" permission for profiles in a repository, but I haven't be able to identify what metadata tag is associated to it. Every time I deploy to an org via ant this permission is getting set to false - what do I need to include in my package xml to be able to pull down this information?

Salesforce can be a jungle to navigate sometimes. Had to pull down Profile enabling/disabling the Manage External Users to understand what is the User permission name corresponding to this permission.

It turns out the name you are looking for is ManagePartners. Add this under userPermissions section of the profile.
