This is what i would like as the overall outcome, a wider community, try
and get as many people together with these technical skills and
expertise,  it means if someone  for example wants a website or specific
features, that community can help provide expertise for them.

It does seem there is a skills shortage,  quite which skills are short
is difficult to determine,  i think these  skills  are out there,   just
maybe not always on paper,    just people with experience and a drive /
passion for something.
