I can help with this project. I have experience in Python for software development, and I maintain a few tools on Tool Labs. I've also used Wikimedia's OAuth in one of my tools.

@Yann, removing @amritsreekumar as task assignee. The parent task is open to participants to submit proposals to and the selected student can work on the project once the decision for the student of this project has been made. This is @SweatC 's proposal and has to be assigned to him.

I'm removing @amritsreekumar as the tasks's asignee. @amritsreekumar you need to submit a proposal for solving this project as mentioned above to be considered a candidate.
@Yann it'd be great if you could add one or two related microtasks that'd help you in judging the student/students for selection.

Sumit added projects to T147618: Localize one or more major WMF software products related to new editor retention to hu.wikipedia : Google-Summer-of-Code (2017), Outreachy (Round-14).

I thought translation work was forbidden by GSoC rules: did you check? On the other hand, i18n work is always welcome and porting gadgets has nothing to do with l10n (but it's always questionable what impact such gadgets have).

Non-coding tasks are not allowed in GSoC but allowed in Outreachy. The task is certainly better suited for Outreachy, but I think there are enough coding tasks to fill a GSoC project as well - it would focus on writing Zotero plugins and adapting gadgets to VE.

Gadgets are unlikely to have direct impact on new editor retention (although I would expect them to have a major impact on the productivity of experienced editors), but porting them would help the editor community to adapt VE. It's hard to get useful help as a newcomer when none of the experienced users use the same tool that you do.

Sumit added a comment to T148952: Recruit Google Code-in 2016 mentors.

On a side note, one thing I felt was notably missing from last year's GCI was tasks relating to Wikimedia's mobile apps. I don't know if this was due to a lack of mentors or if there was a perceived lack of student interest, but I think it would be worthwhile to see if those projects want to participate. I know there is a large number of high school students who program iOS and Android apps, and I'd be surprised if those tasks weren't taken up quickly.

For info, you can hangout on #wikimedia-mobile where you can seek the iOS apps team to chat about and explore the possibility of iOS related tasks.

I agree and I'm regretful that I wasn't more verbose in that task. If I created it, I suspect there was a good reason - e.g. a discussion on Wikivoyage or there was a technical barrier to doing so. Hoping we can shed some light on the issue and get it fixed. Thanks for reporting it!

I don't think I can co-mentor the project altogether, but I'm happy to volunteer as an alpha tester for the documentation: read, attempt to implement, edit spelling/grammar/etc.

@Mvolz can you add one or two microtasks and add some more description which'd help newcombers on where to start. I can then move this to featured till we look for another mentor :)

Is two co-mentors sufficient? :D Can this be put in featured column?

Hi again,

I have set up Gerrit and have gone through the details on Parsoid. I went through the bugs for Parsoid. Can you please suggest some easy task(bug) that I could try out? Also kindly let me know if this project will be mentored for Outreachy or if I should be trying on another project.
Thank you.

Hi I'm a final year undergrad at Indian Institute of Technology Mandi, India. I'm interested in working on this project as a part of Outreachy-13, I'm done with gerrit and vagrant set up and familiarising myself with the platform right now. Should I go ahead with the microtask T103284 or is there something else that I can start before that to enhance my grip on the platform, code base and project itself?

Hey all. I want to know that is this project going to have a mentor? I really wish to contribute, for it will help me in my GSoc 2017 application.

Great! featuring for Outreachy-13. It'd be great if you could add a co-mentor. Also please update the skills and one/two microtasks.

This task featured in GSoC 15', but does it need further work? whats the current progress? Is this still a Possible-Tech-Projects candidate that we can have it for an Outreachy round? Some clarifications would be great!
