Subject Re: Google Summer of Code in Apache Airflow

Hi Jakub,

Thanks for considering airflow as a GSoc project. You mentioned you looked
at the links on the JIRA, so you would also have seen the roadmap that was
for new features.  It is available here:

At the moment people are really busy trying to get 1.8 onto the road, which
would be a really cool milestone for the project.

Beyond the wiki and this mailing list, there's also a chat
channel where you can meet some people using or developing on airflow
itself and ask
other questions.

One way to get started and streamline future contributions is to look at
coding standards and how PR's are usually resolved.
You can also start looking at the JIRA to look into current issues:

What I can suggest is that you try to develop a proposal (based on the
roadmap?) to improve airflow and then find a champion/mentor
to help you get there, ideally one of the committers.

Best regards,
