I'll repeat this community contributions section idea, because I think a forum is a bad way to keep track of them.
Here is my view of it:
- Format should be similar to that of the MG patch tracker: Everyone can post their contribution, entries can be voted on, people can post comments...
- Should have these sections (and more): Patches, QVMs (server), Clients, Servers, Mods, Maps, Models, Textures, Wallpapers, etc
- Consider some of it for 1.2?
Also the idea of having a dev TODO list for 1.2 with regularly updated progress information would be nice.
