I would certainly go with the project posting board idea: It helps everyone on the OpenSource circuit, experienced or wannabe's.
in reply to Job/Project Postings
Take me for example (being the egotist that I am): basically where I am there isn't a LUG or a PM for miles around and I'd quite like to help out on an OpenSource project.
It would preferably be Perl or C related, in an adjuvant (ie. non-coding for now) role - I want to improve my skills desperately (as I only know a narrow subset or Perl and only a little C) by helping to document or beta-test code or something similar.
Definitely a great idea.
