Can you have a look at the Outreachy call for participation? What I
need us to consider are points 1 through 3, on having the
capacity/commitment to mentor interns in the Outreachy program.
Do you think this requires a vote, the wording in point 4. is "Get
consensus from your project’s PMC"?
I for one, can mentor and work on defining project ideas.
I've submitted a project proposal to the Outreachy organization.
Here's the description I wrote:
Even though the Camel website (camel.apache.org) is only a year old,
it could do with some improvements.
During last year's (2019) Google Summer of Code, we migrated the
content from the Confluence Wiki into Asciidoc documents, created a
build process using Hugo and Antora for the static content (frontpage,
blog, release notes, downloads) and the project documentation (user
manual, component reference, sub-projects documentation), and created
the design of the website we currently have.
With the affordance of hindsight, we now see some improvements that
can be made to the website. Some examples include the ever-expanding
top navigation menu, low color contrast, small touch targets for menus
in mobile version, poor content organization (especially in the user
manual) and the lack of search.
We identified four main focus areas: more modern design, usability,
content organization and improvement, and adding search. This calls
for an intern interested in working on multiple aspects of the
website: design (HTML and CSS), static site generation (Hugo, Antora),
such as corrections to the existing documentation or adding new
documentation to the project. One example could be migrating the blog
content from the Confluence wiki to the new Hugo based blog.
If you wish to join me in mentoring a potential intern working on this
here is a link where you can apply to co-mentor:
you might have noticed the influx of Outreachy applicants making their
first contributions to Camel, and very likely their first
contributions to an open source project.
This is exciting and very good for the Camel community.
If you would like to help and mentor Outreachy interns, feel free to
reach out to me and I can add you as co-mentors. PMC/committers can be
added directly, for non-PMC/committers we have a process of achieving
consensus within the PMC. Get in touch with me for details.
