* Do you have small, self-contained, "easy" bugs you'd love to get fixed? (Also see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Annoying_little_bugs ) * Does your documentation need improvements? * Do your old bugs welcome some testing? * Does your user interface have some small design issues? * Does the Outreachy/GSoC project you finished welcome small tweaks? * Would you enjoy helping someone port your template to Lua? * Does your gadget use some deprecated API calls? * Do you have some tasks that welcome some research? Google Code-In (GCI) will take place again in Dec+Jan: a contest for 13-17 year old students to provide small contributions to free software projects. Wikimedia will apply again to take part in GCI.
