Developer Advisory Team

Registered by Daniel Holbach on 2011-10-14

As opposed to having fully-fledged 1-on-1 mentoring, we might want to think of a much more light-weight approach and coordinate efforts such as: 1) reach out to new contributors, thank them for their work and get feedback, 2) reach out to people who might be ready to apply for upload rights and help them, 3) reach out to contributors that went inactive and get feedback from them and offer help.

This should be easily manageable by a small team and would make the developer world a much more social experience.
