So, I think you should please ask the advisory board, and then I think
you should try to find somebody. They might say No, but in the past
they've wanted to be asked more often, because they want to help.

There are plenty of part-time student sysadmins at universities and
colleges, so you should be able to find someone similar for GNOME. You
don't need a genius - you just need someone who is paid to have time to
do stuff.
