I don't think we should ask vroom
to reinvent the wheel
with respect to projects.
SourceForge may take a little learning, but for GPL-type projects, it's got a powerful interface and a lot of features that make project management a breeze.
I think an appropriate place to advertise paid projects (seekers and writers) would be on home nodes. Certainly a /msg or email (as requested) to monks with such things on his/her home node seems appropriate.
Speaking of which, if someone needs a non-web-development Perl coder in Minnesota, contact me
