Subject Re: Interested in being a mentor for Google Code-In?
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2016 03:43:29 GMT
Sure Ed,

Please use the label "GCI" to tag Google Code-In tasks, refer this link
<https://mifosforge.jira.com/browse/MIFOSX-1811?jql=project%20%3D%20MIFOSX%20AND%20status%20in%20(Open%2C%20Reopened%2C%20%22To%20Do%22)%20AND%20resolution%20%3D%20Unresolved%20AND%20labels%20%3D%20GCI%20ORDER%20BY%20priority%20DESC%2C%20updated%20DESC>
for
reference.

As Ed said, tasks need to me simple, introductory and can be doable within
1 to 2 days and need not restrict to only coding, it could be cleaning of
user manuals, installation guides or other training materials, please refer
example tasks given by GCI at  "bite-sized tasks
<https://developers.google.com/open-source/gci/resources/example-tasks>"
