Let's celebrate Roundup by turning it into the official Python bug tracker

Richard Jones just posted a note about Roundup turning 5. What better birthday gift than turning it into the official Python bug/issue tracker. Readers of Planet Python certainly know by now that there are 2 issue trackers in contention: JIRA and Roundup. Unless people step up to volunteer as admins for maintaining a Roundup-based Python issue tracker, the PSF will choose JIRA. I walked the walk and volunteered myself. I know there must be other people out there who would like to see a Python-based project be selected over a Java project. Any takers? Send an email by Oct. 16th to infrastructure at python.org stating your intention to volunteer. All it takes is 8 to 10 people.

Is there any information anywhere about the kind of work involved? The skills needed? Types of tasks that need to be performed? I would imagin that if there needs to be 8-10 people, there's probably a task break-down written up somewhere...

Unfortunately, I haven't seen any such information.

If somebody from the PSF reads this post -- it would be great if we could actually see some of the stuff Duncan is asking about.
