I tried recruiting some Project Managers last year and it didn't end up
working. It seemed initially like it had a good chance as their was a local
group that had some interest in volunteering (in general). The person I
talked to had taught a training course here at work and seemed interested
in this open source stuff (wiki's in particular), but I got no actual
followups. It seems like we have been able to get some people who are
not primarily packagers involved with the project, but for some things
it might be pretty hard.
