Yes, the issue queue would have been the right place to ask this.   
However, since a fair number of people seem to have missed it, I'll  
also answer here...

Yesterday I rolled out some changes to the project pages which are  
incremental steps towards the redesigned drupal.org.  In particular,  
there are 3 new blocks on the right sidebar for each project:

1) "Maintainers for XXX" - with the names of the most recent people  
with CVS access who committed to the project, some stats about their  
commit history, and a link to a page with all committers to the  
project (which would include translation commits, previous  
maintainers, etc).

2) What we're internally calling the "Issue cockpit" block -- search  
box, stats about # of open vs. total issues (and the subset of those  
that are bugs), direct links to advanced search, e-mail subscribe, etc.

3) "Recent issues" -- 5 most recent open issues in the queue.

Therefore, the wall of links below the release table is mostly gone in  
favor of these blocks.

p.s. Thanks to the SF d.o redesign sprint in general, and Mark "mfb"  
Burdett (http://drupal.org/user/12302) in particular, for helping  
making these blocks a reality.
