The most useful way to do that is to be sufficiently actively involved 
in a sufficient Project Role and technically educated in the development 
of the Project to be able to participate in the review & shepherding of 
incoming contributions directly.

Without that, you would basically end up with a bunch of people not 
doing the actual work monitoring those who do.

That's rarely very appreciated, and even less useful than it sounds, as 
there could be any reason why two minds don't meet. Most of those 
reasons are perfectly valid, and don't have to be explained or excused

The trouble with coming up with surveillance infrastructure is that 
typically people being singled out for surveillance have not consented 
to it.

In other words, don't create wiki pages that track what other people do, 
whether they are at a conference, or on vacation, submitted a patch and 
didn't reply or get a reply for $PERIOD, and so on.

That would not be helpful.
