I really still fail to understand why we need two onboarding sites. Can we please improve
whatcanidoforfedora? Or drop it for something new?
We have a serious web site proliferation problem.

I think those are both fine teams to start out with and both have decent
onboarding processes. So I'm not sure what the problem is.
I think what Ankur was trying to portray was that these might be tasks
easy for someone with some technical knowledge to try picking up or if a
person has experience working in other open source projects. If a person
is a new contributor to open source or unfamiliar with the community
structure of Fedora. While the on-boarding processes for each area are
well-defined, I believe what Ankur was hoping to accomplish was
something that introduces the broader Fedora community to a newcomer and
gets them familiar with the Fedora ecosystem.
I also think it is worth stressing that having WCIDFF point to some more
advanced projects or big topics is a good idea for existing contributors
looking for new areas to contribute or outsiders coming in with plenty
of experience or having contributed to other projects. I think WCIDFF
assumes a broad definition of what a "newcomer" is, while this site
assumes a newcomer is more of someone who has never contributed to
Fedora before and has no idea what how to navigate or look around to
find more information on teams / sub-projects in Fedora.
This is my interpretation, anyways. :)
