That is some great quotes! :)

This holds true for every other free software project as well.
And for those who can code, it's not so easy to contribute because:
1. You don't know how or from where to get the source code.
2. You cant get it to compile.
3. You don't know which file to edit, or where to edit it.
4. You don't know where to send patches.
It is not easy to contribute...
That's why documentation is so important.
If you really feel that way, perhaps you should contribute with documentation rather than code.
but if he could contribute with documentation he'd know what file to edit, and thus he would not need the documentation to contribute. Only the people already involved with the project can deliver good documentation, the problem is that they rarely do.
So he should get involved with the project to be able to deliver the documentation. If there is a will, there is a way...
Yeah, but too bad not everyone can code.
Everyone can code. Most people are just not willing to learn...
