Debian has applied to the Google code-in program as mentoring organization. In the Google code-in, pre-university students (ages 13-17), have the opportunity of contributing to Debian, trying to complete different tasks.
We are hoping to get accepted and improve our outcome from last
To achieve this, we need the help of more Debian contributors proposing
and mentoring simple tasks for the students. Please take a take a look
at the archives in the mailing
and join us with your proposals.
The list of tasks is at http://wiki.debian.org/GoogleCodeIn2011/Applying, we are specially missing translation and training tasks!
You can also join us in the IRC channel #debian-soc (irc.oftc.net)
