I'd really like a wiki page listing all the community members for TB we have available and their roles, starting from the management, coders, reviewers, QA, anything.

Of course the list should be maintained by the management (or QA), but for the initial period I offer to create and maintain it. I just need a pointer where it should be done (wiki URL) and an initial dump of nicks/names to put there.

Of course there are the user profiles on the 'mozillians' site but I am not sure how easily navigable that is to casual visitors. I imagine the URL to the list could be dropped into IRC channel or bug comment if somebody needs to see the roles. E.g. a commenter questioning if a bug was WONTFIXED by a member with proper authorization (role) or myself looking for a person able to do code in, say, S/MIME (but not the peer/owner).
