#3455: Add New Onboarding/Concierge Team

 I'd like to propose a new team for the community in the form of an on-
 boarding/welcoming type of team focused on getting new contributors
 involved in the project (''in any particular way that might be''). I
 myself felt that when I first started getting involved that it was tricky
 to find the right information and there was a lot to take in. It can be
 very overwhelming to get going properly.

 That's why I'd like to have a new team added and head it up but
 encouraging people to get involved and providing assistance in the various
 ways they can get involved.

 Whilst this team would in some way extend other teams, I don't feel like
 onboarding necessarily needs to come from a specific team like Core, or
 Themes, or Marketing. With a new team we can be much more specific in
 helping guide people into the project, explain how things work. Help
 people get setup and next steps.

 Perhaps this could even be expanded to having some kind of mentorship
 programme as well. I'm keen to try and help more people get involved where
 possible and make that first contribution a lot easier.
