[This is meant to be one of (I hope) several conversation-provoking
questions directed at prospective TC members to help the community
understand their positions before considering how to vote in the
ongoing election.]

Over the last year we have seen some contraction in the number of
companies and individuals contributing to OpenStack. At the same
time we have started seeing contributions from other companies and
individuals. To some degree this contraction and shift in contributor
base is a natural outcome of changes in OpenStack itself along with
the rest of the technology industry, but as with any change it
raises questions about how and whether we can ensure a smooth
transition to a new steady state.

What aspects of our policies or culture make contributing to OpenStack
more difficult than contributing to other open source projects?

Which of those would you change, and how?

Where else should we be looking for contributors?
