Well other then packaging and developing something upstream and
targeting it for next fedora release, we can also highlight some tasks
related to internal in house fedora applications or bug triage or even
infrastructure work. But I am not sure how do we reach audience ?

Did you missed **[1]** link here ?

Yes, real problem is not identifying tasks, but pointing them to
folks. And yes "reporting", "discussing" and "announcing the progress"
or status of "tasks being done right now" is a good way of doing that,
even if folks involved right now are less in number.

I am not too sure about how it will go nor about how will we be
picking audience, but +1 for experimenting.
