Next up is Outreachy Round 19! Wikimedia is participating in the winter edition!
If you are interested in mentoring a coding or non-coding (documentation, design, research, outreach, translation, etc.) project, and you are not familiar with the program, reach out to me (via email email@example.com) to learn more about the next steps.
If you are already familiar with the program and want to share your idea for a project that you would like to mentor, share in a comment on this Phabricator task: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T232048.
