I feel like that is kind of a defeatist attitude- that we shouldn't keep
new contributors to OpenStack in mind. There are new people
coming in every round of outreachy, every semester at NDSU, BU,
Northwestern... I am in contact with 3 more universities since
the Berlin summit looking to form similar relationships with us. That's not
If the process of getting started becomes more complex, I think we will
struggle even more to get new people involved and build
them into the next generation of contributors to step up when the current
folks have to/ want to move on. Many projects already
have a very short bench and I can only see fracturing our development
processes as making it harder to build up the number of
contributors we have to support our teams and those that have been in
leadership roles so long they are looking to step down soon.
