To answer you question. Yes, we are.  Now I can't say that our
solution considers many of the items you mentioned, but it directly
addresses Joining the project and deals with the knowledge and flow.
However, it's currently only intended to be used at conferences.  The
project is called Fedora Event Splash (or FEZ if you don't like the
long name)

We had a FAD about it at UTOSC 2009 and the overwhelming thing that
kept coming up was how confusing it was to join the project if you
didn't have any idea how you wanted to proceed.  Ian and I have a
hackfest for it at FUDCon where we plan to start development on it so
we could sure use some input.
