That's very true, and I hope that by building a friendly and welcoming
environment, we'll raise the chances of getting sufficient new
contributors to help with this issue.  For my talk at Euroscipy last
year [1] I made some plots collecting git statistics that show how
badly loaded most scientific python projects are on the shoulders of
very, very few.  I really hope we can find ways of spreading the load
a bit wider, and everything we can do to make projects more appealing
to new contributors is an effort worth making.

Cheers,
