Managing an community led project is not a great deal different from managing any other type of project. You need to identify units of work and then prioritise them accordingly. However, since you are allowing your community to define many of the tasks it is important that you conduct all project management in the open, this allows you to manage your communities expectations. That is, it means you are able to clearly identify which tasks are going to receive attention with your current resources and which will need an injection of further resources from community members in order to be completed.
