Question for Stefano: New contributors

The GR to be welcoming to non-packaging contributors was a good thing.
However, it addresses the end of the membership process, the actual
membership. Before they even enter the NM process, we need to get them
contributing to Debian.

What is your assessment of the situation at that end, Stefano? Are we
frequently getting non-packaging people contributing to Debian, and
becoming a part of the development community, or are such people rare

What, in your opinion, could we do to attract more of them? What
barriers are there that we could lower?

Are there particular kinds of skills we need?

What about packagers? How could we attract more of them, and get them to
stay in the project?
