Perhaps Stop Using ‘Non-code’? Whatayarekin?

It is a rampant meme – ‘non-code’. Used to describe contributions to open source projects that are not code.

This kind of language creates insider-outsider boundaries and will signal to anyone that isn’t a programmer that they are secondary citizens and that their contributions will be valued accordingly. Not very motivating.
