Description

For details: https://openhatch.org/wiki/OpenHatch_affiliated_projects

"An affiliated project is a free/open source project which is working with OpenHatch to welcome new contributors to their community. Affiliated projects are characterized by a friendly culture and a willingness to do some extra work to make their projects more accessible."

As I mentioned in #809, becoming an affiliated project can help us get contributors via OpenHatch, but (most importantly) can make us a much more approachable project overall.

Here are some of the steps from OpenHatch (note redmine sub-tasks beside them):

We've created a detailed how-to for creating these. The basics that we look for are:

Contact information for the project as a whole, as well as one or more maintainers who will be OpenHatch's main points of contact.

Needs improvement; we have Bjoern listed on a couple of our Project Component pages:
http://openhatch.org/projects/LibreOffice%20Libreoffice

We do have a solid page for getting involved here:
https://www.libreoffice.org/community/get-involved/

An overview of the purpose of the project, as well as its basic structure, tools and technologies.

We have a lot of pages about LibreOffice, technical details, etc:
https://www.libreoffice.org/discover/libreoffice/
https://www.libreoffice.org/community/developers/

LibreOffice is such a big project, perhaps we need to do more to make these details (esp. technical details) accessible to them.

A step-by-step guide to installing the project/setting up the development environment.

A step-by-step guide to making and contributing changes to the project.

We've got some guides for different teams: Making code contributions can be a little tricky

Once we feel that LibreOffice is accessible to new contributors, we should chat with the OpenHatch folks and ask them for feedback. Outside evaluation is the best way for us to judge the quality of our documentation and resources.

hmm sure, if we find enough time/volunteers interested for that :-)
