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 :) https://www.mediawiki.org/
wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/2018

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:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/Mentors. 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

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: https://www.outreachy.org/communities/cfp/wikimedia/. Help us
spread the word about Wikimedia's participation in these programs :)

Cheers,
Srishti
