The last half of this article talks about marketing to the developers, but what volunteer projects need to do is market to the users. Not to decide where they're going next, but to showcase what they already have! It's really more of a PR team than a team making active decisions about where the project will go next, although doing user studies can help to inform the developers of areas they might want to work on.
