Ok but... what do *you* think about my proposal? :)  What is the problem
adding Project in addition to Company? Any comments on the bold violet

Sure, it's more about having some colored pixels and now that this guy
has an avatar. Good marketing to encourage others adding theirs
(normally an avatar has also behind a well filled profile). And at some
point you do recognize familiar avatars no matter how small they are.

You might be involved in OpenOffice.org, which won't have a garage
project itself.

Get a list of only the people interested in Documentation, or Testing, or...

But I think this should be done offering partial user listings (e.g.
those in France, those in OpenedHand...). The general list of users we
are talking here will get too stuffed if we add also the interests imho.
