I agree with Mitar on *contribution*. I don't understand if for
contribution he means only *coding* but for me contributing is not only

What we need for this project is:

  * constructive discussion
  * understanding of other communities needs
  * brainstorming
  * database design
  * coding (python, html, javascript, css, bash, ecc.)
  * performance optimization
  * unit testing (automatic tests)
  * beta testing (people testing the software)
  * translation
  * documentation
  * promotion

This cannot be done only by coders. I don't feel good at doing the
design of the database for example.
I also don't think anyone here knows very well what is the ideal,
abstract database design, we'll have to figure it out together.

So yea, vote only if you are going to contribute in someway. I think
it's obvious that if someone joined this list and partcipated in the
discussion he is already contributing so I don't see any problem.

So why don't we list the things we can do for this project?
We can write it on the interop wiki.

I am Federico Capoano, i'm a web designer and developer.
I feel good at doing:

  * web design
  * frontend development (html, css, javascript)
  * loading speed optimization
  * python/django development
  * promotion and motivating people

And i'm willing use my skills to put effort in this *new* project, as
long as we keep the design abstract, simple and extensible.

For me those are key requirements.

>> nodesoup - Mario, Federico, DDub, Aaron
