Thanks for asking, Flavio. That's one of the topic I mentioned in my
candidacy, that's because as a Chinese working on OpenStack in the past
6 years, I do have some experiences about this though I agree it
couldn't be done in 1 cycle/year. But I think it's still a domain I can
contribute for OpenStack.

I can still remember I had to join the Glance meeting at 2:00AM, and was
challenged because of saying "Hi guys" in a public channel though "Hi
guys" is used very common in New Zealand. Should we expect a non-English
native speaker to understand the details between “Hi there", "Hi guys"
and "Hi folks"? I think that's the language and culture barrier for many
new contributors. We (Brian, Erno) even tried to propose a panel at
summit to discuss it before. Currently, it's more important than ever to
keep those new contributors due to the changes happening around
OpenStack nowadays.
