That's the point I was trying to inspire a discussion about. I
think we need to think very hard and with a very open mind about
what this means.

What are the reasons that people don't answer our calls for

I think the calls for help are too broad or too loose for people to
feel attracted/inclined. Just a hunch. Personally, I see no
problem in dedicating a few hours a week to the "13.x release
process", but I need a todo-list from which I can pick the top item
and then work it for e.g. an hour or so.

Like ?

There isn't much listed at the moment, when I log in I get a list of
four tickets opened by myself. I clicked a few links and got a list
of issues (all resolved/closed) - looks like that sort of tool, yes.

That's what I would expect from the list of tasks to do for the 13.2
release 6 months AFTER the release is done.

Sure, me too.

There were plenty of open tasks BEFORE the release date. Many of them
simply were closed because nobody stepped in and many of them were
finally done by the same 3 guys.

It was very poorly advertised, IMHO. Stephan mentioned earlier:

I can't help wondering if it was really a good idea to put the call for
help and the url in "Minutes from Today's Project Meeting"? I _do_
read those minutes occasionally, but it's exactly a must-read for me.

Later in 2014 was mentioned on
opensuse-factory and somebody commented:

"I agree that it is not much visible. E.g. in participate and join
community on it is not mention at all."

Anyway, if (what else is it called?) is
the place to coordinate the-work-that-needs-doing, I'm all for it.
