Journal Journal: How to find open source developers 3

Here's the deal: I am a hair stylist for a salon. I am also a long-time Linux user (pre 2.0 kernel circa 1995). I am not, unfortunately, a developer. I have been combing the net for an application to use at our salon for booking of clients, stylists calendars, inventory, and client information. The program must be open source, and run on Linux. The problems are:

1) I have no budget for this.
2) All salon software seems to be Windows or Mac only.

So I sent an invite out to the Feodora mailing list to see if there was a developer out there interested in working on this project with me. I would server in two ways: testing ground/feedback and writing documentation (I write Linux content for CNET.)

This could be good exposure for a developer or team of developers to get their wares into a niche that currently has no open source solution. But no one seems to be interested. So I ask, how could one find open source developers interested in such a project?
