I think that ALL  contributors and committer can help in this effort and
increase knowledge transfer by ...
    - Keeping  technical discussions on the list.
    - Trying out, reviewing  and asking  questions about patches
especially in components which they are not experts.
    - Paying  quick attention to patches and technical questions.
    - Avoiding all thoughts of component ownership.   

For the newcomers,   focusing on quality items as outlined in DERBY-257 
can add great value and learning potential  with very low (often no) 
risk.   Contributions of this type I think deserve our highest level of
attention.  I think it is everyone's itch to bring more high quality
contributions and contributors to the project.
