Excellent suggestion, Lares. Mr. Fogel's book (<http://producingoss.com/>,
"Producing Open Source Software") looks like it contains extremely
pertinent info for my project.

After skimming the table of contents and some of the chapters, I'm finding
that my project already employs, on a collaborative web server, many of
tools/systems that Mr. Fogel recommends (I started building said server
with the potential that it could be open-sourced one day, and that day may
now be coming to fruition). Having said that, I suspect the guidelines and
recommendations for general community management (processes, policies,
approaches, etc) will provide additional, invaluable information and
knowledge from those with past experiences with such projects.
