You've started a great Idea.

But it is not easy suggesting which package someone else should work on.

Oh, definitely, but let's not lose sight of the main idea-

I think that the real issue here is that adding a few elements of structure would make more people feel like they could start to participate, and more importantly, motivate.

To comment on the original suggestion, those who don't want to work on the suggested package are in no way compelled to. It's just a common starting point.

The team has done a good job of making all the information available for the highly motivated to get themselves going, but if you want wider participation, you'll probably benefit from offering a second, more structured approach for the participants to "cut their teeth" and gain a little confidence.
