Sorry, wasn't meant to be a hard sell.

I merely filed it so that it would encourage other potentially 
interested committers to put their names forward. After all, I'm sure 
that people know me by now -- but what about others who are working 
towards that goal as well?

As one someone's earlier mails pointed out, sometimes it's just that it 
needs a kick-started process to get the ASF process into action, and in 
essence, that's the point of Davanum's original suggestion.

It's also been suggested that a Wiki would work for the same effect, 
but it's more likely that the current committers are going to read this 
mailing list so having a record of other interested people would be 
more advantageous if brought up on the e-mail list.

Does that explain why I filed it a little better?
