Gregdek is my hero.
POINT #1: ALL THE ENTHUSIASM IN THE WORLD FAILS IF IT CAN NOT BE HARNESSED.
POINT #2: WE STILL DO NOT HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE SET OF FEDORA WORK ITEMS SUITABLE FOR NEWBIES -- BUT WE WILL FIX THAT.
This is an absolutely key problem to solve. The following scenario is one that we must avoid at all costs:
Newbie: I just found out that I can help this cool project called Fedora! I'm going to go to the Fedora site to learn more!
(An hour of searching an inherently confusing wiki follows.)
Newbie: This is really hard. I think I'll go play Freeciv instead!
Note: MORE WIKI PAGES DO NOT SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.
Skills management. It is a problem. We are all learning how to solve it. This is a tough question, because conventional management training (I may be speaking wrongly, as I have little formal business training and have not read every book on the subject - but I've read a lot and asked around a lot) seems to focus on how to run things when you do have a chain of hired command.
When you can't order people to do things, you have to use other ways of getting things beyond your individual capacity to happen. How do you do that? I'm looking at fundraising, nonprofit volunteer recruitment... these are all full-time jobs. What if you have a full-time job? What if you can't take that much time? What do you do?
