An alternative approach would be a help-wanted page, organized according 
to skills, maintained on the same sort of system as the board agenda. 
Each PMC chair whose project is looking for volunteers would supply 
information about their needs. The result would be a public web page 
potential volunteers could search.

Ideally, it would be on a whimsey-like system, but a start could be made 
by just defining a format and keeping the master page in a PMC chair 
accessible SVN archive.
