A few days ago we all agreed that the quality of our questions and answers could use some work. Many of us have been hard at work to fix this, and I feel like we've definitely broadened and thus improved the scope. And their certainly have been some pretty good questions. but I feel like the problems we had then still plague us.
As Gilles said, we'll need expert-level questions to attract experts. However, to successfully ask and answer expert-level questions, we need experts. (Or at least people with intermediate experience who are actively working with open source.
And sadly, it seems like we're lacking there.
So my question is, how can we reach out to people actually active in and knowledgeable about open source projects and convince them to join this beta to help raise its level?
