Yeah, it's hard to get going, it usually just needs someone to "put up"
and make something that impresses people. Let me know if /Libre Video/
can offer anything in terms of infrastructure - SCM, file hosting,
e-mail, etc. Setting up a mailing list is almost certain, and I put-up
a poll to gauge visitors' interest in different methods of
collaboration. I also plan to add a wiki, but yeah, /Libre Video/ is
all about helping those interested in pushing the "freedom" agenda.
