In order not to focus too much about what people do
(technical/non-technical stuff), and more about welcoming people, I
propose to stick with Stefano second proposal:

 <q>This statement marks a new stage in the process of welcoming
-contributors in our project</q> said Stefano Zacchiroli, who sees it as
-a means to <q>be faithful to our vocation of universality</q>.
+contributors in our project</q> said Stefano Zacchiroli, because
+<q>community diversity goes hand in hand with community richness</q>.

Just committed in the repository, debian-l10n-english CC to fix the
wording if needed.
