Seeing as I already spend 70% of my time mapping unpaved roads in Colorado, and I've some opinions of my own about the subject, I'm happy to set up and run wiki pages etc bout the subject if people think that this would help

itching to map can "shop along the shelf," pick out a
sub-project that gives chew-and-digest satisfaction (whether it lasts
a day, a  week or a month) and results in that warm feeling of
accomplishment (beautiful, high quality data as useful results) once
done.  Now, THAT'S a crowd-sourced mapping project!  We're
getting there, though in a low gear.  Discussions like these,
some identification, some organization, some inspiration, and we will
rev it up faster.  Elephants are best eaten one bite at a time.
