cover? If so, items that would need to be covered include, but would not
be limited too:

Don't know

Don't know

Don't know

I can set up Trac on the SATLUG server.

> Where to host the Source code?
svn on the SATLUG server

> What happens when everyone gets tired of the project and there is no one to update / fix 'Bugs'?
That's an issue for all projects

> What is the proposed 'Time Line' from the start of the project to the first public release?
Depends on the project.

> How often to 'update'?
Releases can be too frequent.  I recommend every six months.  A new 
project may be a bit more frequent.

> How to handle the release numbering?
The current methods are major.minor.  Another way becoming a bit more 
popular is sequential: -1, -2, -3, etc.

> What 'Open Source' license to use?
GPL3 of course
