An excellent donation from Google, extended contracts, and Google Code-In update
Speaking of Google and people who have contributed through its outreach programs, this is time of the year for Google Code-in. If you are not sure, "Google Code-in is a contest to introduce pre-university students (ages 13-17) to the many kinds of contributions that make open source software development possible." More can be learned at the GCI about page Within the first two weeks (of seven), over 70 tasks have been completed by over 25 Google Code-in participants. The types of tasks include writing ".recipe" files for haikuporter to build Haiku packages (*.hpkg), fixing issues detected by Coverity, fixing issues reported in our bug tracker, reviewing documentation, as well as others. Even though the students often need an occasional hint on how to solve a particular issue, the majority are doing quite well. Many of these students are new to contributing to open source projects, let alone HAIKU. They are showing that a good amount of determination and a strong desire to help are the key ingredients to making contributions.
We invite you to help out wherever you can, whenever you can, and however you can. ... perhaps even by making a donation if you want.
