Have a mapping between parts of Tails and their programming languages
While having a look at http://whatcanidoformozilla.org/ on tails-project we end up agreeing that we are missing a mapping between the subprojects of Tails and their programming languages. In other word, an easy for new contributors to match their programming skills with tickets they can solve.
It should be maintanable but not necessarily depend on a fancy webapp like Mozilla does.
Document the programming language for each Tails component (refs: #10708)
We've been wanting to do something better for 4 years, and failed to so far.
So let's do the simplest thing that can help here.
Link from the new "code" contributor page to the list of components & their programming language (refs: #10708)

Since this is about programming languages only, maybe this mapping should go in https://tails.boum.org/contribute/how/code/ ("Developer and Maintainer"). If we end up doing what I suggested in #10179#note-12, then this mapping could serve as the list of mentors for the "Developer and Maintainer" section.
Regarding #10179, feel free to join the discussion. I've been too busy to disentangle this last month but maybe having your opinion would help moving things forward. Especially if you're ready to work on this ticket which I think is related.

I've done something. It's not perfect and does not reorganize the contents as well as we would love to, but seriously, this has been open for 4 years so at this point, even this imperfect solution feels much better than the status quo.
