Following up on Marc's comments, how many of our non-dev contributors
are active in multiple areas. It seems like I often see the same people
in many areas.
Good point.
One of our advantages is the strong localization community.

First of all we can at least try to invoke these people in other areas like QA and documentation.

But we should also learn from the success. LibreOffice is released in more than one hundred languages. The localized versions are released on the same day as the English. This fact has motivated a lot of people to help with translation.
The localization process is kind'a self motivating:

 * When translating the application we can immediately see a result as
   progress in Pootle.
 * We can see that our work makes sense in real life.
 * We see our local language being released on the same date as the
   English version.
 * Localisation can be performed as a crowd task (I don't have to do
   everything my self, we can work together)

Can we somehow transfer these motivating feelings to other projects?
