[Wikimedia-l] Google Summer of Code 2018: Call for projects and mentors

Srishti Sethi
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
   lexicon https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T161310
   2. Notification your file was used https://phabricator.wikimedia.
   org/T77154
   3. Notify users about deletion tags being added to pages they created
   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T123866
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T123866>
   4. Implement HTML e-mail support in MediaWiki
   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T15303
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T15303>
   5. Implement Internet Archive BookReader in Commons & Wikisource
   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T154100
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T154100>
   6. Create tool to generate, track and show metrics for Tech News
   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T91335
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T91335>
   7. Merge proofread text back into Djvu files
   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T59807
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T59807>
   8. Allow having an on-wiki ToDo list per user
   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T48103
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T48103>
   9. Allow contributors to update their own details in tech metrics
   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T60585
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T60585>
   10. Convert WikiLove from jQuery UI to OOUI
   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T89815
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T89815>
   11. Add VisualEditor support to the Quiz extension
   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T148972
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T148972>
   12. Pywikibot: Implement support for flagged revisions
   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T57081
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T57081>

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

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Google Summer of Code 2018: Call for projects and mentors

Hello all,

We are approaching towards the beginning of the student application period
in two weeks time. If you have a project in mind that you would have the
time and interest to mentor, please create a task on Wikimedia Phabricator
and add a Google-Summer-of-Code-2018
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/3096/> tag to it in the
next few days or so.

Check out the existing ideas for projects and program timeline here:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/2018.

More information for mentors:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/Mentors.

Let me know if you've questions!

Cheers,
Srishti
