Ah, here's the link to my last go at getting people to self-organise.


You should find it somewhat useful. It gives an overview of people who
are / have been involved.

We did get another reasonable push at the time. In particular Max did
a lot of good work. I'm not quite sure why it petered out again, I'd
have to ask Max what went wrong, if it was my fault for letting things
block on me or if it was just holidays/christmas. Maintaining momentum
is hard.
