[racket-dev] call for ideas

Dear Developers, we need ideas and input. 

We have decided to reorganize the systems maintenance tasks over the
next few months. Part of the goal is to modernize, and part of the goal
is to give Eli more time for real projects.

Our first stage should involve "outsourcing" various services, where
someone else maintains a hardware and software installation, and we
just maintain the content. That outsourcing will include


- web pages

- mailing lists

- source repository

- bug reporting

- @racket-lang.org mail addresses

These services might all go to the same machine, or we might outsource
them to multiple places. For example, "@racket-lang.org" mail is mostly
handled by Google Apps, and maybe that doesn't need to change. As
another example, github is an obvious home for the source repository,
but it might not be so easy to get push information to DrDr.

Any advice on this first step of reorganization? We hope to get the ball
rolling by March
