I can't volunteer myself (sorry about that), but I think the most
pressing need is sending out a call for project proposals *specifically*
aimed at attracting submissions of non-development tasks. This is
because we are quite good at attracting development task proposals
(repeated GSoC successes testify that), but we have basically zero
experience in attracting other kinds of project proposals.

Of course we can decide to participate in OPW with development tasks
only, but given OPW is at present the only initiative I'm aware of that
also encourages applications for non-development tasks, it would be a
pity to give up on that.

Just my 2 cents,
