This kind of request (and others like it) would fit nicely on the Get
Involved [0] wiki page.  I know that you mentioned similar issues in a blog
post not too long ago, but it seems like you didn't get too many responses
from people saying that they would like to help.  Still, maybe if we had
these kinds of requests up in one fixed place (rather than a blog post on
the planet), we could get more people to help.

If you have a bit of time, and wouldn't mind putting up these requests,
please go ahead and do so.  Otherwise, just forward me some of the
information on where you could use help like this, and I'll put the
information up there.  Thanks,
