I think it's a great idea!

I've seen frequently repeated questions in the forums and even different
answers to the same requirement. So it would be nice to have a place to
detail this requirements which can be used for developers as reference.
>From my experience, we have four or five AMPs that we are using on every
project from source code because we can't find the time or the motivation
to make them more generic. So this could be an opportunity for us to paste
some source code from here and there and build a generic artifact which
could cover some of there requirements.

On the admin console, I would wait for someone with time enough to design
the basic tasks of the project and them we can collaborate together to get
the job done. Unfortunately, I'm not this person :)

> Item #6 on that list in the wiki is an addition based on discussions we

> part of compiling list of valuable addons and “shepherding”  neglected ones
> is consideration of frequent requirements. Some people were explicitly
> asking if we would also provide a central place / repository for any unmet

> community developer, team or even a community-based integrator may pick up
> to develop the missing functionality.

> consolidating requirements and even draw up rough concepts, I’d prefer us
> to focus on the addon collection well into next year. If and when we have
> that process sorted and going steady, we can start with collecting/listing
> requirements…
> For the admin console replacements: It would be great if someone picks
> this up in his / her spare time, but I don’t see us in a position to
> organize something towards this goal (yet) unless there is a volunteer.
