    Open source projects can always use more contributors. If there is a pool of qualified people who could be contributing but aren't for social reasons, it is in the best interest of the project to...

    Yes, that is the point. There are qualified women but they are not interested in participating. The whole point of the program is to get these women interested.
  4. Yes, trying to be inclusive for a group that is...

    Yes, trying to be inclusive for a group that is under-represented in a field is pretty much the definition of "diversity and outreach". Trying to exclude anyone not in the main group in a field is...
  5. So 10% of the potential applicants are women,...

    So 10% of the potential applicants are women, while 0% of the actual applicants are women. Clearly the lack of qualified women is not the only issue here.
  6. Again, qualified women are not even applying for...

    Again, qualified women are not even applying for these sorts of positions, and there is a lot of reason to think that a large reason for that is the perception that FOSS is not friendly to women. ...

    Women who have tried to tell their stories got flooded with rape and death threats, sometimes even being fired from their jobs.

    In an ideal world, no. But in the real world, no toolkit can ever cover all possible use-cases. There will always be a need for applications to target the display server for tasks the toolkit is...
