Please don't subsum all the other projects under "Developer".


In opposition to Sophie and Cor I like the "Get involved" tab
very much. In my eyes this attracts developers too.


Even if we need new developers more than any other contributors
(I don't really know if this is true, but I believe what I've
been told), the starting place for contribution should show our
community in a whole. LibreOffice should try to avoid
discrimination between code contributors and non-code
contributors wherever it is possible without negative effects.


I'm quite sure, that it *is* possible to attract developers with
prominent information on the "Get involved" page in (nearly?) the
same way as with a "Developer" tab.


Contributing can definitely mean more than code, documentation and

Of course, it's even not a question to my eyes, currently I think that there is only dev, doc and money because David didn't have the time to add the rest. However we need developers and need to attract them in a very fast way, no more than two clicks from what I've heard. So may be considering have a dedicated part for them in a more prominent place could be good? As said to Bernhard, I'll follow your decision because I'm not sure it what I plead is acceptable for every body.

Kind regards
