> In support of Zhipeng's first email[1] and a chat he and I had the other
> day[2]. I went ahead and started to formalize this SIG.
> I created an entry in the SIG table[3]. I also created a specific wiki
> page for the First Contact SIG[4].
> At this stage it would be great to get a list going of people interested
> in being points of contact for newcomers and what timezones those people
> work in so its easier to figure out who they should talk to.
> I think it would also be beneficial to start collecting links and
> resources- contributor portal, Mentoring wiki, Upstream Institute,
> Outreachy(?) etc to link to on the First Contact wiki page.
> As we discussed in the forum session around this SIG[5], it might also be
> good to get representatives and a chair more from the ops side of things so
> that we have more than one type of involvement- not just code/doc
> contribution- covered.
> As far as a mission statement sort of thing, I just threw something
> together and am 100% interested in feedback. Pasted here from the SIG Wiki
> and First Contact Wiki:
> To provide a place and group of people for new contributors to come to for
> information and advice. New contributors are the future of OpenStack and
> the surrounding community. Its important to make sure they feel welcome and
> give them the tools to succeed.
