If anyone really wants to volunteer their services to seed AI,
and is impatient for a set of marching orders, they always
have the option of setting out on their own. In my opinion,
the more people who do that the better, because the people who
do that have to think about how the task-as-a-whole might be
accomplished, and so they'll be better equipped to contribute
if and when a seed-AI *team* does get off the ground.

And if you need a blueprint to get started, CaTAI exists,
even if the specs for Flare do not. I would urge the people
who are keen to code *now* to think of a functional subsystem
(i.e. a module) that a seed AI would have to have, and try
to code such a subsystem, in the language of their choice.
I don't see how the effort could be a waste, no matter what
