Question for A. Towns - NM
A. Towns writes, in his platform:
I think it's important that the project accept contributions from as
large and diverse a group of technically skilled people as we can
manage. I think the best way to achieve this is:
1. To have our lists filled with interesting technical discussions,
that welcome intelligent contributions from new-comers, and don't
waste a lot of time going over old ground or off-topic subjects.
2. To have newcomers be invited to act as assistants to existing
groups; and for helpers be treated like individuals, rather than a
new build that needs a standardised test suite run over it.
Can you elaborate? What does this mean in practical terms?
