Well, it's helpful, except a few of the people responsible for projects 
on that list are those that are very busy, and somewhat unresponsive.  
Are those all people that volunteered to help developers trying to 
learn/contribute?  If so, great, but if not, they should be replaced 
with some other committers with more spare time available.
