Agreed. We should all try and put as many tasks into the TODO list to 
give people ideas on what to do. (I"ve just added a few more).

There's heaps to do - we should really try and break down existing 
tasks into small chunks to make it easier for folks to jump in and 
start doing things. Though in the early days its a little hard until 
the core framework is in place to know what to add - but it should be a 
priority so we can all get stuck in and help. Though thats another task 
in itself - find all the JSRs we should/need to implement (have just 
added that to the wiki).

As soon as we've got our issue tracking system (which I hope is JIRA 
but would settle for Scarab if we must, please not bugzilla) it'll be 
really easy to add & manage tasks that way. Until then the Wiki should 
allow us to have a page per task & list folks working on it etc.
