I would emphasize on that one. A lot of projects I know of is regularly 
assembled somewhere to chat, IRC around and play. It just gives you this 
"what have I done in this week?" feeling, and after all the serious mailing 
list discussion you'll have a certain point to relax and share some future 
dreams with the others :)
And it's most likely something you won't miss since you've started it.

Personally I think it is (still?) harder to find artists than programmers. 
But it is hard enough to get someone working on a project in fulltime. 
What Terry wrote, "it would be a shame to see it collapse for lack of 
interested programmers!", is true indeed, as a project in the fast-growing 
Linux game environment seems already dead when there is only some weeks 
without a release.

Just my opinion (as someone who's programming experience has mostly grown out 
of Open Source projects, so I may see this wrong).
