This essay by the Volunteer Development Coordinater for Wikimedia makes some interesting points that I thought might be useful as we try to organize around astropy, in particular as regards including people who are relative newbs -- in the case of astropy, that might be astronomers who have written their own one-off scripts or evolving programs for their own research before, but not done anything more formal in the way of software development.
Anybody have links to other resources about growing a FLOSS community, or inspiring anecdotes or cautionary tales on the subject?
