These are great ideas.  However, we (the JSF Members) have been
talking about not wanting to reinvent the wheel and the sad fact that isn't maintained now, so it makes no sense to suggest
improvements to it or our other tools with nobody stepping up to
manage them.  The alternative was to take something off the shelf so
to speak such as Trac.  Something that can do roughly what is
doing now but without the crutch where volunteers are scarce.

So that having been said, unless you are offering to *do* these
things, I think the better idea is to go to somewhere like
where they have project activity stats.  Or if there is a tool you
feel should be evaluated that can fill the needs without being a
burden to admin & code, let us know.
