There are lots of free online tables and spreadsheets, e.g. google or my 
favorite zoho.com, with many other convenient stuff. A NumPyPy state 
info datasheet could be created with 1st column - implemented funcs, 
next several columns - triples like (funcname, person_working_on_it, 
estimated_finish_date), or something like that, filled by the persons. 
Potential NumPyPy users or contributors could review current state of 
numpypy development without having to download and install each latest 
night pypy build and, possibly, propose their own contributions or 
financial support to implement funcs they need and still miss. I guess 
it's not so difficult to create and maintain, but, of course, you could 
select any other approach.
