This is an early heads-up to potential mentors interested in participating in these programs – if you would like to mentor a coding or non-coding (documentation, design, research, outreach, translation, etc.) project, share your ideas in a comment on this Phabricator task: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T241019 or refine it more secretly during the year-end holidays. :)
