Can I just say that I think using new people looking to have work
experience with OpenStack to further pet projects, without telling them
it is a pet project and not considered a project which others may
consider OpenStack to be not the best approach for encouraging new people.

Not knocking your project, Adam, since I know nothing about it, and this
isn't the first time I have seen this happen. But I do believe that
folks asking to help out with something are looking to gain transferable
skills so that they have something to offer a potential employeer who is
looking for work experience with OpenStack. That would be what I would
be looking for anyway.

New people have no idea what are considered transferable skills within
OpenStack unless we tell them.

Thanks,
Anita.
