If I'm a king of a dream forest...

I think how to improve attractiveness of free software to contributors. It
is no longer a cool trend. How about find some resources (maybe internal
ones) to make people strengthen the community by creative reasons? Business
reasons are short living (compared to creative reasons) and unpedictable.
There is a long and unproductive discussion on how to make foss more
attractive to business, improving it won't not hurt either.

Maybe attracting some educational resources / collaborating with them would
help. This 100% success GSoC rate makes us turning some students away from
Apache, and they should have some place to stay and learn and grow.

More new blood will create more productive and successful and caring
mentors.
