  To Sir, with Love: How To Get More Women Involved in Open Source
Subject:   Encouraging none code contributions

Selena, I think it is problematic to ask for non-code contributions to be valued more to support women. These contributions are considered less important because they really ARE less important. Open source is about writing code, first and foremost.


I strongly believe that for women to play a bigger part in IT (which we all want), they have to be encouraged to take on the hard core, high value, high reputation roles.
