It definitely is the commonly used term for that sort of thing.  But I
would tend to agree that I wouldn't expect people to get excited about
volunteering to be a janitor. Any idea how successful those projects are
at attracting volunteers?

Sadly, I don't have a better suggestion. But no matter how much Michael
says he loves janitors, to me a janitor is someone who has to clean up
other people's crap (figuratively and sometimes literally). And I can
see how that could fail to attract as many volunteers as the "Freeswitch
Happy, Rich, and Well Endowed people" project might.

I always thought trolls had to be trying to really be considered a
troll. Like if I were to post to this list trying to convince you all to
give up on freeswitch and join the asterisk project, while knowing full
well the history, and just trying to get a rise out of you.
