Hi!
I want to contribute to the Git project. However, I'm not sure what I can
contribute to.

I'm used to the GitHub workflow, where I would look at the "Issues" section of
a GitHub repository, and try to tackle bugs / features I think I will be able
to work on.


1. What is the equivalent for the Git project? How can I find issues/features
that I can work on?

2. Is there a way I can find bugs/issues that are likely easy for a new
contributor to pick up? Similar to a "good-first-issue" label on GitHub?

Based on your responses, I can also update the documentation, so that others
like me can get started quickly!

Thanks!

Divyanshu Agrawal

Git was started before GitHub (and many such platforms) existed, and
we still use a mostly email based workflow, even if we do use GitHub
and other platforms for some things like code hosting and CI.

We have the following documentation:

https://git.github.io/General-Microproject-Information/

There is also the microproject idea page from last year's GSoC:

https://git.github.io/SoC-2022-Microprojects/

We haven't updated it for this year yet, so some ideas might be
outdated. It might be a good idea anyway to discuss a bit your
micro-project idea on the list when you have found one before starting
to work on it.

We do use GitHub (at https://github.com/git/git.github.io/) for our
Developer Pages (at https://git.github.io/) where we have a lot of
useful docs for developers.

We also use GitHub (at https://github.com/git/git-scm.com) for our
main web site at https://git-scm.com/.

If you want to contribute as part of the Google Summer of Code 2023,
it's best to say so and to add "[GSoC]" at the start of your email
subjects.

Thanks and welcome to the Git community,
Christian.

Thanks Christian, for the pointers to the documentation. This will help 
me get
started.

While these are good for GSoC applicants before they do a real
project, I didn't read the "where I can contribute?" as such---it
asks for something more real, not a toy "dip my toes" practice.

Perhaps looking for #leftoverbits in the list archive may be another
approach that would give readers a problem with real upsides?

Thanks.
