"How can we (as a community) get more contributions and manpower?"

We probably need to start building a community first. I think that one of
the problems is this very mailing list. It is pretty low on traffic and in
my opinion isn't doing a great job at building a community. Our company has
had a lot of success using discourse forums to build a community around our
product.  Is IronPython part of the .Net Foundation? If it is, maybe we can
piggyback our their discourse forum by requesting an IronPython category
and then directing people there for support.

Just a thought.
