Hello everyone,

One of our long-term goals at TDF is to grow the project and community,
as much as the userbase. Like, it's awesome having 200M+ users, but if
few people contribute back, it's just a pretty number. So I've been
looking at ideas to improve this page:


1. For each sub-project, have a photo and name of a "contact person" (eg
Heiko for Design, Xisco for QA etc.) The goal here is to make the
sub-projects look more welcoming and friendly, and provide a place to
start for newcomers. Of course, we don't want these "contact people" to
be overloaded with questions from newcomers, but they can at least point
newcomers to the right channels (Telegram, mailing lists etc.)

2. For each sub-project, add some specific tasks that people can do. So
not just "join this community" (and then what?), but "join and get
started straight away by doing X, Y or Z"

3. And also for each sub-project, add links to interviews with community
members from the TDF blog. These often describe how someone got started
in the community, and their experiences.

What do you think? Are there other ways to improve the page? Thanks in
advance for all feedback!
