Is all this "help needed" stuff that ordinary users can help out with?
If so dont people go and ask for help in the forums?

on the major archs - if you use a minor arch that isn't as well
supported I'm sure we'd be happy to have more help.
Arch teams, according to their project pages, are in a good shape. Major
arches have enough people ( assuming that the project pages are up2date )
The amd64 project page at least is definitely not. We have a ton of
slackers. I'd venture to say most in the project don't actively work on
amd64 at all. We are handling the load fairly well though.

Really? I was thinking about joining amd64 project but when I visited the
project page , I saw like 25 people listed as developers. So I thought that
"Woow,there are plenty of dudes here, so there is no urgent need for new
developers right now"
This is a major issue as well. If the project pages are way out of date, how
do we expect people to understand our real needs on manpower etc. Cleaning and
updating the project pages once a while is not that difficult. It takes about
15' ( and a couple of e-mails to inform the slackers ).
If we really (?) want to run a "recruitment" campaign, our "web presence" but
be quite active and responsible.
