Basically, someone who takes care of all the non-development tasks that
volunteer work alone: making sure goals are defined and worked on,
decisions are made an followed through, and releases happen; mediating
disputes; welcoming and encouraging new contributers; making sure
patches and questions don't fall through the cracks; taking care that
the web site and documentation are in good order; submitting news
stories; organising and/or giving interviews; organising conferences;
organising participation in programs such as GSoC; and so on and on.
I can definitely do some of those things!
I thought about "refreshing" the web site sometimes ago. No need to redo everything... one can do a lot with just CSS Styling.
Also reorganizing/writing docs, summarize IRC meetings...
But as many people do, I have another personal project that I'm working one (have been working on for the last five years :-( ) so it would not be more than a couple of hours a week.
Hope I'll be able to free sometime asap... let me know if you have a "top 5" list of simple things that have to be done.
Hoping to be more helpful in a near future,
