Agreed. A community like Fedora does need a well rounded team and I
never mentioned we are slacking. So wrt the challenge - I feel there
is fairly a neat list out here http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join . I
dont see what more needs to be done to get more people interested and
get started. The only important thing to take care is not to lose
interested people. Forcing does'nt work. For all we are volunteers :)

Basically as I always felt, it all boils down to being interested /
individuality. No amount of cajoling will help in the long term.
