Yeah and in something like open source it's something we want to actively push for! It's definitely not as easy as just "everyone should do open source" or "everyone should code" but there is a lot of value in not being an expert. I guess we use the word 'naive', but not having biases can bring you far if you have a vision/excitement that can go beyond what an expert would look into. I think as a maintainer it's basically what we should be doing However, I know it takes a lot of work and mentorship which isn't as easy as making some beginner issues.

When everyone is free to say whatever it may be hard to provide feedback and people may come away feeling left out or unheard. It takes a lot of effort on everyone's part. What's the motivation though
