Let me add that nothing should be holding you (anyone) from starting a
project by sending an email with intentions, get hold of a wiki-page to
list your ideas and progress and motivating people to help and test.

sideways to and from RHEL, or a design, documentation or translation
project. I am sure your effort is useful, but often it needs commitment
and determination to get things going.
