I don't want to discourage you - all I want to say is that this project 
probably depends mainly on you and you have to find a process that fits 
to your habits and the time you are able to spend on it. Keeping up the 
motivation heavily depends on that you work on the code exactly the way 
you want to - pressure because of schedules simply doesn't work for 
something you do as a hobby.

Throwing an idea on a mailing list with some positive response + setting 
up some initial administrative steps is something I have seen often. But 
writing and maintaining code over a longer period is a very, very 
different thing.
