I really like this, as a junior developer myself, it's very off-putting to have someone criticize your work like that. And definitely makes you want to not work with open-source projects.

I think it's our job as developers to not only be good with code, but people as well, after all, there is usually a lot of teamwork involved.

Yeah, very true! 👍

I would even widen that to all sorts of projects where multiple people work on an not just open-source.

Criticisms it self is good, but is always about the HOW it is delivered. When talking to a junior you could say something like: "Good start! Maybe you could have a look to class-x/documentation-x/blog-x. Let me know if you have any questions." ...something a long these lines. Or just spend some time with your juniors and do pair programming :)
