Ubuntu Wanted Site

A while ago I posted an idea at Brainstorm [1] about the creation of a
website where team administrators can post roles in their teams. This
includes static tasks(bug triaging, MOTU) and tasks that are just
suitable for one person(maintainer of package X, leader of team Y). The
team administrator from an approved team can add a role. Other people
can apply for a job and the poster can approve it.

Some people really liked the idea and asked for further clarification of
the idea. To do this I've created a blueprint [2] and a wiki page [3]
for this specification. But it's not complete yet and still needs some
discussion. Next to the FIXMEs at the wiki page the programming language
needs to be discussed and if some other people have some suggestions,
please give them.

I want to ask you to read the blueprint and wiki page and give your
opinion. Did I forget something? Do you have a concern or think
something is wrong? Feel free to add something to the wiki page, but if
you've got something major discuss it first at this mailist.

Two things I came up with:
-What if team administrators would like to let other people post the
roles? How could we check that?
-It would be nice to provide the option of a counter for the static
jobs. If only 5 people are needed, the job will be marked as closed.

Some issues:
-Can you request teams and team roles from Launchpad when using OpenID?
-Would it be good to keep all jobs in some kind of archive?

Ideas from other people:
-Integrate it with brainstorm
-Show to all people the list of applicants.
