As discussed with Nigel Verity on the marketing list:

I'm thinking of a series of images with "Small change, big impact" or something, showcasing many of the community contributions that didn't require huge amounts of work, but make a big difference for end users nonetheless. Maybe with a pic of the developer and a quote...

I'll start to get examples of these changes, from release notes, and create a set of images we can post.

Here's an example of a nice story - someone who got involved in LO via GSoC, then went on to become a full-time LO developer at Collabora: https://twitter.com/libreoffice/status/1305428547029401601

That's a USP we can continue to highlight - contributing to LO can lead to even greater things.

These are ongoing, long-term projects IMO so let's continue working on them this year, and then evaluate the situation at the end of this year.
