Interest - lots.  Action - not much.  There are lots of people who would
love to see this sort of thing up and running but don't have the time
and / or kernel level knowledge to get it going.

TBH I'd wait that until there is some code being written otherwise you
risk joining the ranks of so many well intentioned OS projects that have
great websites but are a little short on code.

I agree entirely.  I'd love to take on the task but right now I have a
degree to finish.  Maybe next year I'll find some time to look at it.

This is all ofcourse - just my opinion and if there is anyone who feels
they want the challenge it sounds like you've got lots of potential
