I concur with Yuri.
One thing I would add is that a lot of knowledge is actually dispersed 
in this mailing list.
It would not be bad to have a forum on which to engage at least a 
mainstream part of the community.
Information would be searchable and more accessible.

Also, is there a general repository for all the contributions that have 
been done so far from the Community?
This would be another great asset on which to work, independently from 
the platform we'll end up being on.
