To: Wikimedia developers <>, Wikimedia
Mailing List <>

Hello everyone,

Wikimedia has been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer
of Code 2018!

We already have recruited six project ideas and mentors, but we are looking
for a minimum of *14-15 ideas* more, as Google Summer of Code is a neat
platform to bring new developers :)

If you are interested in mentoring a project, but not sure what the roles
and responsibilities of a mentor are like, take a look at our guide: Feel free to
propose your own idea, or help by mentoring one of the below listed,
curated from the possible-tech-projects workboard:

   1. Tools for volunteers to make it easier to improve the Wikispeech
   2. Notification your file was used https://phabricator.wikimedia.
   3. Notify users about deletion tags being added to pages they created
   4. Implement HTML e-mail support in MediaWiki
   5. Implement Internet Archive BookReader in Commons & Wikisource
   6. Create tool to generate, track and show metrics for Tech News
   7. Merge proofread text back into Djvu files
   8. Allow having an on-wiki ToDo list per user
   9. Allow contributors to update their own details in tech metrics
   10. Convert WikiLove from jQuery UI to OOUI
   11. Add VisualEditor support to the Quiz extension
   12. Pywikibot: Implement support for flagged revisions

Sidenote: These are only ideas, and we do not encourage students to pick
them unless we have recruited at least two mentors for a project.

We are also participating in Outreachy Round 16 and funding up to two
projects: Help us
spread the word about Wikimedia's participation in these programs :)
