This actually sounds like a pretty good idea, and one that I might
actually be interested in.

Someone working within such a project would have to be in close
communication with most/all of the team leads within Gentoo. I feel that
this would be a better solution than asking for (semi-)regular updates
from the teams - having someone to have a chat with the team lead is
much less formal and more relaxed way of ensuring that things are well.
If it seems that the project is having problems staying alive, a call
for help could be put out. If there is no improvement, the project could
be referred to the Gentoo Council to see if it should be
removed/abolished, otherwise...

Opinions/ideas welpcome!
