That is great! I am anxious to see part of it :-)

That seems do-able, mission: "Leaving the cloud"

Also, instead call for proposals, we could go through what already has
been proposed in this mailing list and put them together in a wiki

Again, mailing list and wiki pages have lots of information about it.
Putting together a proposal and have people to comment on it might be

I think we are starting to understand the way to go.
I am with your thoughts, some management is needed.
Let's use wiki pages as main place to put this project information,
