Open Source is People*
For those who want to do more than just code, this talk will show you 8 ways I have contributed without opening up Vim once.

Then I learned that Open Source isn’t just a commit, a patch or a pull request. It is about bringing people together of all different skill sets, from different backgrounds, different genders and solving problems together.
