The GNOME Foundation provides an outreach program for women. You can learn more here: https://live.gnome.org/GnomeWomen/FOSSOutreachProgram.
OpenStack would like to participate as a project and has identified some mentors. We also need to identify projects that would be appropriate for participants in this program. This page should collect the ideas for applicants to work on.
They definitely emphasize that applicants may not have ever worked on FLOSS before. There are several stages to the program, but the first stage is to mentor during the application process itself. Joining mailing lists, IRC, understanding the channels of communication are good first steps. Logging bugs and fixing bugs are also good ideas.
Interns are expected to spend 40 hours a week on the project.
So, feel free to list ideas here:
