+# First Contributions
+*The more you give the more you get out*. 
+It's natural to assume that, as a newcomer, 
+you have little to offer the ASF. However, you will be surprised at
+how much you can help, even now. 
+Since we aim to be a place for newcomers to learn
+about the ASF as a whole and you are (probably) a newcomer *any feedback
+you can give or unanswered questions you can ask* will help us improve what
+we offer to those who come afterwards. 
+Feedback can be provided and questions asked by subscribing to our mailing
+list by sending a mail to
