If the following seems daunting to produce by yourself, we're happy to facilitate a "set-up sprint" - an IRC meeting (or meetings, as needed) where OpenHatch volunteers attempt to get started with your project. This will allow you to quickly and efficiently handle problems with dependencies, documentation, etc.
Practically speaking, we'll test your setup and documentation ourselves before listing you on our OH-affiliated projects page, so you might as well work with us to get there. We've found that newcomers such as our [http://campus.openhatch.org/ OSCTC alumni] are
very well suited to this kind of contribution .
====2. Identify appropriately-sized tasks ====
* the First Tasks page, which we will be sending newcomers to on a regular basis
Tasks for events should generally be fixable in two hours or less.
You may also be interested in mentoring newcomers as they work on larger tasks. [https://openhatch.org/wiki/Starling Details].
==== Other ways to get involved ====
These are in no way necessary to become an OH-affiliated project, but sure would be neat:
* We are always looking for enthusiastic staff to come to our events. If maintainers or core contributors are interested in volunteering, we'd love to have you! Our attendees have had some wonderful experiences working through bugs with project maintainers sitting right beside them.
