I was in a conversation with somebody recently over email and I ended up writing something that I should share here:
Here's the big problem we have .... hundreds of people willing to help in support, code, test, do art, redesign things, improve usability, etc.. but no organization.
We set goals but never follow through, changing them in a few days, or simply forgetting about them and setting new ones.
We need a central person or body to manage (or at least keep track of) all activities and directions and remember goals we set and make sure we work in that direction, possibly prioritzing items at the same time.
I want to play a part in this 'administrative' body, but I don't want to be responsible for keeping it running. I just want to voice my opinion from time to time. Mainly, I like to program.
