I have a few comments.

In Task 3 you write "Sponsor chooses which outline design to develop"; while
this is understandable on some level ("He who pays the piper calls the tune"
;-), I don't know how you (we) want to handle the case that
* a single sponsor feels that some minimal solution is sufficient for her
  (while most of the community needs a bit more), or
* when different sponsors want different solutions.

In "Time scales..." you mention "Daily communication"; depending on the
sponsor(s) that might be a very time-consuming task.
I'd advise just giving weekly "what was done, what's planned for next week"
overviews - possibly to the dev@ mailing list, so that all can feel the
advancements.
(Or do you think that this will be done in 2-4 weeks, so that you'll need a
finer granularity?)

For "Intellectual property rights", I'd be happy to have something mentioned
that these works will be available with the same license as subversion itself,
see URL ...

Thank you for your efforts!

Regards,

Phil
