That's the point I was trying to inspire a discussion about. I
think we need to think very hard and with a very open mind about
what this means.

What are the reasons that people don't answer our calls for help?


How can I help?

Are there concrete tasks that need to be done? Are they listed
somewhere? Is there a general "we need help with X" wiki page?

Technical tasks are probably visible at some OBS/wiki page, but that is
still too hard to find and consume.

Also, I often feel that as somebody not (any more) working for SUSE I
always miss a bit of the background details, the plan and maybe the
skills, as Coolo will always be faster in doing something himself than
helping somebody to do the job. I know that'S hard to change (given
brain capability conditions and available time) but.... that is still a
problem. Maybe somebody is creative on how to improve on that...

Last but not least, for many people it's hard to find motivation to work
on a project that feels a bit ...lets say outdated meanwhile. That
however, can change quickly, and this kind of discussion help with that.
