A lot of people think that an welcoming environment is important to fetch new contributors. But is is lesser important as giving people tasks or things to contribute, where the can make there first steps away from consumer/user forward to contributor. We should start thinking about these, its not done with making nice "Join pages" as more creating tasks or bringing existing ones to beginners. With Nuancier, we have already one application to animate people to contribute, but there can be more. openSUSE has with openFATE the right idea (even its poor implemented) but there are also other things we should think about, like our "easyfix" and how we can market them better or how can we get in a better way involved in GSoC and keep our students contributing. This hackfest shall help collecting ideas and make progress in this area.
