As to self-actualization, it's very high up on thehierarchy of human needs.

 And I value it accordingly.  I just love people who can act on
some simple directions, and become self-sufficient more or less
by themselves.

 I am not convinced that self-actualised people are in short
supply in general.  However, they will be scarce for certain
skill sets, especially in the outposts of Debian distribution.
The need for more outreach is quite obvious in the fringes.
And what is more peripheral than new translation teams?

It's all very well to expect self-actualization from people who have the necessary confidence and skills, and the cultural backgroundto support it. Many cultures actively suppress self-actualization.

 Open source development is pretty meritocratic.
This is usually considered a feature, cultural
biases notwithstanding.

 Still, more outreach activity on the fronteers
couldn't hurt.
