A bit more work for httpd than your "~name/public_html/community or some
such" proposal, but combined with your suggested merger of
http://www.apache.org/~jim/committers.html and ~coar/people.html, it would
appear to address most objections I noted on the thread.  One that it
doesn't address is Ben Hyde's view that that the chaotic "mess", where there
are committers who don't even know that they can create a public_html, much
less feel encouraged to do so, is different from a seeming endorsement of
community pages.

Do you believe that someone's first thought would be to look at some
centralized index, or at the project's home page?  What if the contributors
list on each project were similarly (and optionally) instrumented as
proposed by Sam Ruby's suggestion (above)?

Or is that an infrastructure question, along with IM and Wiki topics?
