Checking with you on your suggestion to keep issues in GitHub, should I still plan on linking some issues during future Wikimedia events? And I assume that a Phabricator project would not be necessary in this case?

Yes, that's right! You can use Phabricator for promoting project related tasks during events. For now not needed.

srishakatux added a comment to T299923: Update Zulip's welcomebot message and GSoC organization contact to point to dev portal.

Sounds good! The welcome message update is a work in progress. About the GSoC website, I realized we have stopped giving the link to the Wikitech mailing list since this year, and we only include a link to Zulip as the preferred method of contact. So, I think we are good here: https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/programs/2022/organizations/wikimedia-foundation. But, yeah, outreach programs pages need a review, and wherever we point people to other links to explore contribution areas, it needs replacement with the Developer Portal link. I will now file a separate task around this.

Summary: 19/85 people didn't claim swag ~ 22%. Out of these 19 people, at least 7 shared their reason for not being willing to accept swag items:

  • 4 people were not interested and shared their reason along the lines of minimalism and that they are not interested in owning too many items
  • 1 person shared privacy concerns around disclosing their physical address
  • 1 person is a staff member and doesn't feel comfortable claiming an item as a staff member
  • 1 person said they already have the items and would be interested in more tech-themed swag.

Pywikibot needs development resources in its current state. As per a maintainer, it makes sense to keep it on the page for the very reason. But in my opinion, it is not an ideal project for new developers for the same reason (see an example: https://blog.atagar.com/august2021/). Hence, I'm removing it from the listing.

@dgsahethi Hi! I am Srishti, one of the org admins - it's great to see your interest in applying to Outreachy with Wikimedia! You can safely ignore this message if you have already followed our participants' guide. As you develop your proposal, we want to ensure that you follow the application process steps: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Participants#Application_process_steps, primarily communicate with project mentors, integrate their feedback in your proposal, adhere to the guidelines around proposal submission, contribute to microtasks, etc. Let us know if there are any questions!

@Nvsai In addition to what @Aklapper said, discussing project ideas and finding mentors is part of the application process steps. See Step 13 https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/Participants#Application_process_steps. It looks like you didn't follow these steps during the application period. I am afraid that your proposal is least likely to be considered even for review due to this.
