Maybe first activities? Makes an easier start. Python or gtk+
experience should be enough.

Something like "Got Python? Change the world!"? Not sure how much room
we have. Also, developers are a quite heterogeneous bunch when it
comes to motivation, can we target a defined profile?

Sounds pretty good, a reference to concrete technologies as python and
gtk are may help, because developers tend to group around the
technologies they use and like.
