I think it would be best to organize a release team which would then
plan and explode release to tasks so people could grab one and develop
them. Of course there should be some "backup" people that features
really do get developed.

Perhaps bi-weekly status checks would be a good idea to keep up with
status of every feature.

I can volunteer to be part of such team if decided to be started.

Also this work should be visible so it would be easy for others to tag
alone and help to develop missing features and to submit patches.
