Hi Claude; we are a bit short on man power; once the deegree vote  
happens I hope to be available.

The committee is supportive of new volunteers; we really just need a  
point of contact with each community; and we try not to spread  
ourselves too thin. OSGeo now has a stable of projects that have been  
through incubation (and thus have experience that would be valuable to  
you in incubation). Do you have contacts with any of these projects?  
You could encourage them to volunteer and mentor you.
