I think this is not a bad idea, however, I do not think that there are
that many people working on long projects.  For instance, personally, I
will hack on something for a week and then move on to something else.  A
month later, after some good reflection, I will come back to it.

If you create something nice and keep it up to date, I do not have a
problem with this.  However, I refuse to endorse anything that is

My personal list is (in no real order):

o Posix file locking: Pending review from fellow developers.
o Porting PPP: Currently working on it.
o Porting Parted: Almost done (next after PPP).
o POSIX Shared Memory: Will come back to it soon.
o partfs: Waiting on parted.
o dhcp: Currently working on it.
o POSIX Semaphores: Pending time.
o Variety of other small things.
o Bug stomping (floppy, large memory, tmpfs, groups, high speed (>38400)
  com ports).
