> Hi folks,
>
> the Google Highly Open Participation contest ('GHOP') is going to run
> again this year, assuming they can get some help with the Melange app.
> It will run in December starting ~Dec 7th, and closer to Dec I will  
> buzz
> this list again with some suggestions and thoughts on how to make GHOP
> work well for the PSF and Python.
>
> (Note that this should be a great opportunity for the diversity list
> folk to both lead by example AND to encourage young underrepresented
> students to get involved with Python, hint.)

> If you're not familiar with GHOP, it is a contest framework that lets
> Google pay students for doing small units of work (coding, testing,  
> doc
> writing, etc.) on a wide variety of projects.  It was a success for  
> the
> PSFlast time,
>
>   http://code.googl...­
>
> in that tons of doc changes and test fixes got committed to core, many
> other projects benefitted, and most of the people involved had a  
> pretty
> good time.
>
> However, BEFORE GHOP CAN RUN AGAIN, we (Google + GHOP enthusiasts)  
> need
> help with the Melange application.  It's a bit clunky, it hasn't been
> used for GHOP before, and it needs some development and a lot of
> testing.  Since it's written in Python/Django, and I happen to know
> there are a lot of good testing tools available for both Python and
> Django, I hope the Python community can help out.

> What can I do?
