Note, also, someone pointed out to me that JIRA might already have what we need without adding
more infrastructure.  

In some regards, I think ideas along these lines are almost like social unit tests for PMCs/committers.
 That is, what automated mechanisms can we have that _help_ PMCs do their jobs better in the
least intrusive way possible and give feedback on a regular basis when things could be better.

I know ComDev have discussed having a calendar of events in the past, if we provide some visibility
for it maybe we can actually make it worthwhile.

occurred to me that I might put up a Google Calendar for Lucene or Mahout that is public read-only,
but committers have write control on it.  On the calendar, we could put things like potential
release dates, reminders for PMC actions (such as review potential committers or do board
reports).  Community members could submit "patches" for community related events such as conferences,
meetups, hackathons, etc.
