We need someone to update, prepare materials for, and record the segment of the New Contributor Workshop that welcomes students, and then leads them through selecting, or at least thinking about how they want to contribute.

See the [Section Description] for what this section is to cover, or used to cover. This will have to be updated.

Slides are in the [Overall NCW Slide Deck], slides ___ to ___. You will be making a copy of these slides, then updating and modifying it to work with your recording.

Here's what the team creating this segment needs to do:

  • Update the slides and materials for timeliness and changes to the community
  • Modify the slides to take into account online presentation

SIG solicitation for 2019 CS SD

Hi, I'm ____ and I'm a member of the Event Team for the upcoming Contributor Summit in San Diego, on November 18th. I wanted to make sure that your SIG/WG knew about it, because there are several things we'd like you to participate in.

First, we're looking for Session and Workshop submissions for pre-programmed sessions. These are sessions for three of the rooms that will be submitted and picked in advance; we're looking not just for presentations, but for discussions, and hands-on workshops or code reviews. Submit them through this form, before September 9th:

We need your SIG/WG to send some folks to talk to contributors about participating in your SIG/WG. Please have your group's representative(s) complete the form below so that we can send them additional details closer to the date.

Very Draft Bug Triage Role Description

Bug Wrassler Release Team Role

Your job for the release is to make sure that bugs (issues) and their related PRs which affect the release are dealt with in a timely fashion. In general, you will be polling bugs, checking status, sending reminders and questions to contributors and SIG leads, and publishing summary reports.

Secondarily, you will be helping improve automation around issue management and release tagging.

How this works depends on where you are in the release cycle. There are five relevant periods where your workload changes:

  1. Early Release: between Feature Freeze and a week before Code Slush.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
