Yes, you were stating the obvious. Someone might be serious about
contributing, if for e.g., they have time on their hands, experience
in developing quality products, and the will to spend it effectively
towards a project, which ultimately may not pay off financially (since
it is open source). In this case, I'm willing to demo the system and
show them the code; that is the means by which interested *serious*
contributors can decide if they want to help out, or work on other
open source projects.

Loose statements like "we will help to improve it" is not a sign of a
serious contributor, in fact probably the opposite.
