The reason I created the group is I have an honest interest in  
knowing about new modules; I regularly track 5.x releases at http:// 
drupal.org/taxonomy/term/78/0/feed . And I suspect that there are  
many others with the same interest; if we can get several in one  
group, we can keep the group active. And I absolutely agree that it's  
important to educate existing developers who aren't watching the list  
right now.

If there are no objections to the idea, I will be looking for  
appropriate docs to update to point at the group, so that it does  
become part of the new module process.

As to the "voluntary" aspect of this proposal, I have no authority to  
make this mandatory. And I suspect that those that do have that  
authority would like to see proof that it is working before making it

I agree. We need a group of people with knowledge of existing  
modules.  I'm hoping to attract such people to the Contributed Module  
Ideas group.
