As I'm working on https://fedi.builders I was wondering what is more important to you for picking a project to potential contribute to:
I care about license only in that if it keeps me from using the product the way I want to (or think it should be used), I'll skip the project. And if it looks to corporate or amateurish, that's a red flag as well.
As for language, if it's one I don't know well, that'll be a barrier. If it's a Cool New Language that isn't really appropriate for the task (e.g. a webapp in Rust), that's a red flag.
