We have this attitude over at Lucene and I think it works well.  We also have HowToContribute
pages for both Lucene and Solr and regularly point people to it.
We also encourage contribution via "Perhaps you can open a JIRA issue and contribute your
patch" type of suggestions on the ML.

We give credit to all contributors and always thank them.

Lucene has been around for about 10 years now.  It's a very healthy and active project.  It
now has lots and lots of contributors, but it took some time to get there.
