The regional teams page provides a list of contributors. Bringing
visibility to Indian contributors makes it easy for someone new to
Fedora to get hold of one of them and clarify doubts, get media or any
number of other activities not to mention motivation to contribute
themselves. We can highlight this better. For example, list out in more
details what people have contributed might be useful. If I knew Person x
has python expertise and speaks my native tongue then I might go to him
or her to understand python better. Localization of the contributor
specific documentation might also be useful. The website would just make
it easier to provide a more central forum for such activities.
