Hi Steve,
I was thinking of Bridge, at least the little I know about the game,
where you guess how many tricks(in this case tasks) you can get in the
game -- a contract I think.  Would it be cruel to make some such page of
'contracts' updated by each DD and have someone update the list of
completed tasks monthly. Since volunteers in Debian work on what floats
their boat, I'd be curious to see by release's end, who has lived up to
their own expectations of their contract. Any one for betting? Would
having a public airing of one's own goals be motivating or not?
just feeling in a devilish mood ;-)
