I plan to post monthly reminders of Find-A-Task on Planet and G+

My perspective: Find-A-Task seems rather a failure today. I think we
should continue to try to energize it into usefulness. But if it's still
a failure in, say, February 2016, I propose shutting it down and trying
something else to recruit new participants and contributors to the
Ubuntu communities.
