I help out with JS admin duties but I may not be the best person for 
that, especially since I have not hacked on the JS code at all. It's on 
my list to write a README for prospective JS admins, but to really 
improve it someone will need to dive into the code (or figure out how to 
transition from JS to something else).

The jabber.org website processes could definitely use improvement -- 
especially for updating things like the software pages and server 
listings. The software pages probably have the potential to be something 
like Freshmeat (we have enough of that information in a database) but 
the processes are currently lacking and I'm a bottleneck.

Is this for posting tasks to help www.jabber.org, JabberStudio, any 
open-source project, or also commercial positions? I don't see a need to 
restrict it, but in order to get people to contribute we might need some 
kind of bounty system (didn't we discuss that several months ago?).
