Good discussions. A good time to review -- http://incubator.apache.org/guides/graduation.html#community Also, http://incubator.apache.org/guides/community.html Particularly http://incubator.apache.org/guides/community.html#notes-community Active committers -- the easier you can make it for someone to contribute, the more people will help. It seems there is a good user base. You need to help foster developers/contributors in this community: * actively advertise things that need to be done * don't fix everything (especially simpler tasks that are good for newcomers) * praise contributions * ask, beg, borrow for contributions * use social media -- twitter, facebook, etc. * is there a VCL irc channel? if not, consider using one * freshen up the web site -- http://incubator.apache.org/vcl/ Note that "contributions" need not be in the form of "code". Documentation, web site, answering user questions -- all are valuable contributions to the community. --kevan
