My thought is that we're doing just fine on the web site. In fact, we should 
probably remove it from the "Contributing" page. Between Newman committing 
lostwages patches, me doing news, and a boatload of new stuff flowing to the 
Wiki, I think we're ok. Plus, Dimi got suckered^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H promoted 
into doing the doc maintenance. 
Another idea I had was regarding fonts. What do you guys think of having the 
task of creating some TrueType fonts? A lot more projects besides Wine would 
benefit and it's something that could be done with no coding skills. (Can 
you tell it bugs me every time I download the Core Fonts?) If that was 
deemed reasonable, we'd have to figure out what fonts should be tackled 
first. Maybe Arial? The to-do list would look like:
1. Figure out if tracing glyphs is legal. If not, find some TTF fonts 
someone is willing to relicense.
2. Trace glyphs or relicense fonts.
3. Import new glyphs into fontforge. 

It's deceptively simple.
