Can we somehow transfer these motivating feelings to other projects?
Which projects (or areas) do you feel need most motivation/care?
And where are the next lowest hanging fruits (apart from localisation)?
Just to pick one: QA for example seems to need a different approach, as to ...
. install & test early versions (best: master)
. find bugs (desirable: follow a test plan)
. report bugs (needs bugzilla knowledge)
. reproduce them (try to understand the 'non-native English' first ;-) )
. triage them (needs a feeling for relevance)
. escalate them (needs rhetoric abilities)
. hopefully they get fixed one day (needs patience & luck)
. retest and verify them (oh dear!)
... it takes all an awful lot of time, nearly-beyond-human patience and knowhow,
and cannot (or to a much lesser extent) be crowdsourced. So there should be
other motivators (e.g. a "better working software"? positive end user feedback?
increasing download numbers? fun working in the QA community? learn using funky
(QA IMHO seems to have been a bit abandonned for the last 2 years and is just
starting to gather interested people and establish efficient workflows - hopefully)
