I agree with this. It would add visibility to what the direction of 
PostgreSQL as well as put a friendly face on what the heck is 
happening.

I get a lot of calls that are basically, "What's coming in 8.2" Unless I 
follow the lists it is not an easy bit of information to get. A wiki that had
a page that said, "What's planned for 8.2!" or would be great!

It would also be useful to see who has signed on as the lead or to work on 
a particular subproject in case other developers would like to either lead 
or help a lead on the project.

I would request a vote interface but I think we would get to many 
mysqlisms ;)

Agreed.
