This has been a recurring request, a sort of web application acting as 
"employment agency": matching skills and tasks. Done properly (and with 
an adequately smart user interface) it would indeed help in attracting 
new volunteers.

It would need new tools since BugZilla does not offer an adequate 
interface and lacks the individual part (i.e., a self-assessed list of 
skills that will match the tasks). If somebody wants to draft some ideas 
on a wiki page, this is something that might be worth some effort on a 
medium term.
