Any reason you didn't just set up a gnome-jobs mailing list? There

Nor is a mailing list.
Why not? I've been subscribed to loads of jobs mailing lists over the
years, and they work just fine. I don't recall every seeing anyone
else use a wiki to advertise jobs, though.
Something we can pull with an RSS feed is
probably more appropriate.
Yes, that would work well too. (You can already pull some RSS feeds
from live.gnome.org of course, but I don't know if you can limit them
to a particular page-- and right now they're mostly useless because
hardly anyone fills in the 'what changed' comment anyway.)
At list the wiki page does not require to subscribe to it to read it.
No, but you do have to remember to go and look at it, and that's *so*
last century :)
