This brings to mind a related question.  It's never clear to me who is exactly
working on what.  ISTM that some kind of listing of Work-In-Progress (either
in Perforce or local patches) would be valuable to the project to prevent
duplication.  (The projects.html seems to be a) at a much higher level, and
b) terribly out of date).

Yes, I will volunteer to wrangle this information.

Should we create a 'projects@' mailing-list (or at least a place that quick
summaries can be posted to)?  Should we rework projects.html to separate
it into Continuing Projects/Work-In-Progress/Research Topics?  Should it
be a separate page entirely, built from recent status reports?
