And your view might be biased by the French culture. Just compare
Telegram groups, Indonesian has almost 1650 members (are they all
geeks?) where French has only 15, add no FB group, a dead G+ one, very
small Twitter account and I'll avoid speaking about Ask. So it's an
overall point of view to be considered here on what we want to achieve.
The position saying 'because they are not aware of TDF needs, then they
don't care and there should be no change' is exactly what would
endangered our projects.
As Italo said, it's maybe no the best way to attract contributors, so
let's work on a better solution and positive moves for both TDF and
users, but better based on statistics and not only good feelings :)
