Outreachy Round 15: Feature suitable projects and become a mentor

Srishti Sethi
Hello everyone,

Wikimedia is delighted to participate the eleventh time in the Outreachy
<https://www.outreachy.org/> internship program. The application period for
interns opens September 7th and will be due October 23rd. In the meanwhile,
we need your help -- we are looking for *suitable projects* and
*mentors*. Projects
could be anything ranging from programming, user experience, documentation,
illustration and graphical design, to data science.

If you would like to feature a project / become a mentor:

   1. Get an overview of the selection process, and your responsibilities
   before, during, and after the program
   2. Create a task, or modify an existing one on Wikimedia's Phabricator
   <http://phabricator.wikimedia.org>. Make sure it includes: *Project
   title, description (summary in 8-10 lines), skills required (Phabricator
   tags are welcome), mentors (required two), micro tasks (link to Phabricator
   task that must be completed to become a strong candidate).*
   3. Tag the tasks with #Outreach-Programs-Projects
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/profile/2537/> and
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/2957/> on Phabricator.

   If you know a newcomer, who meets the eligibility criteria
   <https://wiki.gnome.org/Outreachy#Eligibility>and would be a good fit
   for the program, encourage them to apply and follow our participation
   guidelines <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Participants>.
