@ryanleesipes I think it would be cool to feature a new project every episode that is looking for contributors. talk about the project, its purpose, languages. it would be really great to hear about beginner friendly projects with tasks for newbies wanting to learn to code by doing.
@ryanleesipes I always wondered, if it's about #Linux desktop, why not bring in some not techy guy/gal to see their first reaction... Like, idk... 'Grandma try Linux Mint' to see how suitable it is for first time users. Also, some windows/mac power users to see what they're missing. I think it could be usefull for DE devs.
@ryanleesipes I don't think there's much of an issue with lack of content, just lack of communication. Most open-source problems are not novel, and neither are their solutions.
Most open-source issues come from reinventing the wheel without researching how the previous wheels were made.
@RyanLeesipes perhaps you could do hearings on open sourcing work places? Resistance to open source? Management issues? AFAIK these issues are only discussed when star Linux projects kick the bucket like Munich. But there are lots of other places that might be interesting to hear from.
@ryanleesipes @sri is an excellent topic. it's easy for me to bring up, since I am in that exact position. Where I'm just trying and starting to get involved. Only been recently starting out since Jan. consumer of oss to contributor. certain aspects can be a little overwhelming, and daunting in general. and at times not clear where to go. It's easy for people to respond with "write documentation.". but I personally feel that there is way more to it than that.
