Thanks for the project connect links. 
I will check into them on Thursday.
Do folks volunteer with an 'existing' effort that works via VPN document-sharing, their own list-group, or what?
Is there a rotating role of (or tag-team) contact person?
If no group exists, is there a place to notify other volunteers w/o disturbing the questions group?

Its goal will roughly be to list issues based on release:hardware. I' also like to work on a page that helps with add-on dependencies so that collisions can be avoided and troubleshooting made a bit easier. Any help on either page is greatly appreciated and open to different approaches entirely.

Bonus points if one client image supported multiple architectures (I use i386 and amd64).
