Hi Heiko,

That's a great idea. I've gone through the blog post and cleaned up a bit of
the English. As Cor notes, it's a good idea to present the easy hacks as
fun, and highlight from the start that they don't take up much time. Lots of
people would like to get involved in open source but only have an hour or so
each week.

Similarly, I've found that you can get people interested by talking about
the experience they'll gain. Think of computer science students who will be
in the job market soon and want to have some impressive stuff on their CVs.
Anyone can set up their own SourceForge or GitHub project -- but if you've
had your work included in a major FOSS project like LibreOffice, Firefox or
the Linux kernel, potential employees will take more note!

You and Cor mean to add more text at the introduction? Maybe that's a
good place for Jan's additions, isn't it?
