Subject Fwd: Article on "Barriers faced by newcomers to open source"
Date Tue, 05 Aug 2014 14:35:16 GMT
saw this over on dev@community... i reckon "Finding a way to start"
and "Code issues" are the most significant barriers here, but it'd be
great to get feedback from any lurkers here:)

here's a couple concrete actions I think we could take...

1) Intentionally leave some small, approachable issues unfixed for a
while (e.g. BLUR-351[1]).  Promote them on twitter/mail list.

2) Create some docs on the overall structure of the code, how the
projects fit together, maybe highlight some 'paths' through the code.
