Hi Surya, I think posting on your blog is fine. It looks to me like you
have a lot of good ideas, but it would help your proposal to group them
together into a couple of themes. For example:
1. Finish and deploy new site design
2. Improve site performance and maintainability by:
  - adding a caching mechanism
  - using Django-CMS and migrating to Django 1.4.5
  - add design documentation
3. Code/snippet submission by:
  <your points 6, 8, 12>
4. Other new features
  <your points 1, 2, 3, 4>

Then you have to have some idea on relative importance of all these things
and how long they'll take in order to make a plan with a rough timeline
attached.

Cheers,
Ralf
