Re: Sign up to mentor for Outreachy Round 15

Dear Molly,

Hi Keerthana,

That all sounds great! Debian has had documentation and translation interns before. I think not everyone who has signed up to be a mentor (or who has been one) is a DD or DM. This shouldn't be a problem, as long as you're ready to help someone go through the process of submitting their work upstream (if necessary).
Ofcourse, I'd do my best to help

There's a form / template on the projects page: https://wiki.debian.org/Outreachy/Round15/Projects.

I've created a basic plan for the project here : [1]

I did some initial recon and this is my project idea :

"The goal of this project is to verify and improve the documentation and the website content in Debian. Due to its sheer size and variety, many parts of the Debian wiki and websites are in dire need of upgrades and fact-checking. Another goal is to create beginner-friendly docs to various sections of the Debian project to encourage more first-time contributions. "

Essentially, I want to improve the docs and hopefully make it easier for the first-time contributor.

Do you want to talk a bit about your project idea and what the application project should be? Do you want to have a co-mentor or co-mentors?

Yes, since I'm very new myself it would be awesome to have someone a bit more experienced with the documentation and websites to be a co-mentor. I've done documentation before, but never for Debian.

Also, due to this inexperience, I wouldn't mind being a co-mentor who supports with the writing and documentation part while someone else with more familiarity to the Debian systems is the main mentor

Thanks for reaching out. It's really cool when people who were mentored want to help others get involved. :)

It feels so great to give back in any way I can!
