I agree that this should go out. Just, we have "our community" twice in the text. <pun>Any linguistic expertise with us we could possibly welcome?</pun> Anyway, it sounds strange enough to me to suggest substituting the first occurrence with just "us". And, since we also want new contributors to also interact constructively between themselves, and since to me it is somewhat redundant in the first place, I would even feel inclined to remove the "with our community". Second paragraph untouched.
