I'm not particularly active in the WWW team, but maybe I can share some
bits, related to your suggestion.

You may see in https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=738713
a suggestion for implementing a Web variant of the how-can-i-help
program. I think this is somehow related to what you're proposing.

You may get more details about how-can-i-help at

Hope this helps ;)
