Next time we canvas for community ideas, it would be nice to do it on something Drupal-powered, rather than proprietary. :)
The goal of this sub-project is to build an expertise/reputation system which will: a. expose all the different types of contributions (including non-code ones, which can't be measured by simply counting data in database) b. expose field of expertise of individuals, to make it easier to understand "who is who", who is active in which field, whose opinion is backed up by expertise in this specific field c. encourage more ...more »

Allow individual issues to be turned into Git repositories, which allows everyone working on an issue to collaborate in one spot.
Our current http://drupal.org/cases section is very sad. We should make it show off how awesome Drupal can be with pictures, how-tos, case studies, and more!
In addition to running patches against automated tests, test them for performance as well so regressions are caught before commit!
Integrate some kind of donation framework into Drupal.org to allow people to donate to maintainers of projects to help show their appreciation.
