To keep on the topic of the thread - are you saying that these are the 
things you focus on that would attract experienced contributors (as opposed 
to students - your list looks like it applies independently of experience 
mostly)? 

I'm more interested in 'what are the things that experienced people look 
for, which students do not?', and 'do we have those things?' and 'can we 
make noise about them to attract experienced people?'. Do you have a 
response to that?

Thanks,

Steve.
