You are doing an extremely fine job, recruiting new volunteers, and as we
all can see it works (maybe we should get a couple more developers).

Is somebody  doing a follow-up in the form of registering something like.
- how many volunteers registered their interest,
- how many are are still active after e.g. a month (can be any number) and
have "passed" the introduction
- how many are getting actively engaged.

I ask because all though I agree it is important to "catch" volunteers, it
is just as important to make our community grow with a motivated base of
people (In danish we have an expression "do you prefer 10 birds on the
roof, or one in the hand"), and if a lot drop out at a given point, we
might consider changing that point.
