I think this is important and as someone that is fairly new to python
and open source development I greatly value they input of others in
reviewing and making suggestions to my contributions. In addition, I
might not know how to finish all parts of a contribution and knowing
that I can contribute pieces that are within my abilities and others
can review and possibly finish encourage me to contribute.
