I have a new project cooking. Free software, AGPL3+, Python3. What can I do to make it more accessible to would-be contributors?
Follow-up question: when should I got public with the new project? When I have an empty git repo? Or when I have a first alpha version that does anything useful at all?
Having an alpha version will provide a project core to which contributors may feel inclined to add.
At a minimum, there should be a solid description of the project's purpose, perhaps with a fundamental feature list and possible timeline.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
