While obvoiusly not everything anyone is planning to work on is in the ticket 
system, it is generally up to date, accurate and well maintained.

Oh, you'll get no arguments from me there, I've been the one pushing the 
hardest for better docs, and writing a lot of it.  But I've been focussing on 
docs that I'm currently the only one capable of writing.  I've been hoping 
other people will sink their teeths in the feature list, which is easier and 
simple for multiple people to work on, but so far this hasn't happened yet.

I think that's a mistake, before spending weeks/month of full time work 
modifying one, you should spend at least a day on each one.  There's only a 
handfull of captive portal projects.

Well, we'll be very happy to have you should you chose wifidog.
