I think it would be a good idea to have a "Volunteers wanted" page,
where proposed projects are listed. I think I remember seeing a number
of posts saying smthg like "I'm ready to help as soon as there's
something to do". Such a centralized page should make it easy to match
volunteers to projects, rather than having to search through the list
archive. As soon as someone starts on one of these projects, he
removes it from the "Volunteers wanted" page and creates a page
dedicated to that project.

What do you think?
