Internship period for FOSS OPW starts today. Being a proud participant for round 8 with Wikimedia Foundation , my project is “Welcome to Labs – Welcoming new contributors to Wikimedia Labs and Tool Labs”.
Wikimedia Labs is a platform to volunteer and experimental development. It is a two part project Dev Labs and Tool Labs. The problem is Wikimedia labs currently face some difficulties in matching new contributors with existing projects. Also their documentation for newcomers needs improvement as well.
Purpose of this project is to have a complete set of newcomer getting started documentation set with complete project landing pages for a each project. Therefore when a new comer comes he/she has a directed guidance to find what are the existing projects and how to contribute to them or how to start a project from scratch.
I will be blogging my progress throughout the project so await for more details ….
