Google Code-In 2010
The GCI is somewhat similar to the annual Summer of Code projects, but focuses on smaller, more discrete tasks and is open to high-scool age kids.
This is a great opportunity to provide some good "bite-size" tasks that tend to get left aside and forgotten -- code cleanup, documentation fixes, theme tweaks. All the regular maintenance that a good open source project needs, and that any young programmer cutting their teeth can help out with!
These should be small, 'bite-sized' projects. Often, clean-up or 'annoyance' issues, as well as many small features from the bug tracker will be suitable (but not every bug is a good candidate):
- Create a new theme
- Improve the InfiniteScroll plugin, making it work "perfectly" and up to enable-able by default standards
- Clean up doc comments
- Merge API documentation from wiki into doc comments
- Update plugin table definitions for 1.0 schema format
- Update tinymce plugin to "automatically" link @-mentions, !-groups and #-tags
