Google Code-in 2016 has been announced: A contest for 13-17 year old
students. While we wait for Wikimedia to get accepted:
Take those 10 minutes to find (or update) some Phabricator tasks in
your project(s) that would take an experienced contributor 2-3 hours.
* Do you have small, self-contained bugs you'd love to get fixed?
* Does your documentation need improvements?
* Does your user interface have small design issues?
* Does your Outreachy/Summer of Code project welcome small tweaks?
* Would you enjoy helping someone port your template to Lua?
* Does your gadget use some deprecated API calls?
* Do you have tasks in mind that welcome some research?
We have nearly 600 open "easy" tasks listed:
Are the tasks in your area clear enough and still valid?
And can you imagine helping a young person fix some of these tasks?
* Add the project "Google-Code-in-2016" and a comment in Phabricator
tasks that you would mentor those tasks.
* Tasks are welcome in five areas: Code; Outreach/Research;
Documentation/Training; Quality Assurance; User Interface.
* Add yourself to the table of mentors on the wikipage.
* Make sure the task description provides pointers to help the student.
* "Beginner tasks" (e.g. "Set up Vagrant"?) also very very welcome!
* "Generic" tasks also welcome (e.g. "Choose and fix 2 UI messages
from the task list in https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T40638 ").
