Hello everyone,

I am Arzoo, a fifth-year student at the National Institute of Technology, Hamirpur pursuing Computer Science & Engineering (Dual-Degree). I am looking for GSoC 2020 and for the same, I have a proposal in my mind.

Proposal: Improvements and enhancements in website
A community website plays an important role for an open-source organization because it spreads the idea of offerings that community provide, their precious contributions, their skills, their members, etc. So, my project will aim to increase the usability and easiness for all the open-source contributors by improving and enhancing the AboutCode website for developers, newcomers as well as for other organizations. The major focus of this project is to enhance the architecture of the website by introducing new pages like projects and further grouping them into completed, active and archived, past GSoC students (their projects, their mentors, status of their projects), FAQs in different languages, mentors, admins, documentation, filters for projects, newcomer invitation form, feedback form, etc.. As well as, redesigning and restructure of the existing website and making it responsive so that it looks good on different devices.

I will use these technologies - python, jekyll, html, javascript, Angular JS.

Looking forward for precious feedback.
I can also give a detailed proposal.

Thanks & Regards,
Arzoo

@AyanSinhaMahapatra how would this be different from your efforts to date? ^
Ayan Sinha Mahapatra
@AyanSinhaMahapatra
IMHO it does sound a bit like a GSoD project, as the focus of this sounds like user experience and how good the website is/looks (does aboutcode website refer to any other website like the aboutcode.org one?). A lot of other major open source projects also use ReadTheDocs or similar documentation systems and that's more logical IMHO. As you rightly point out, the documentation, getting started sections and everything else is already in shape due to my GSoD project, and in it's current shape easier to maintain and update, with the code, than going for something fancier, frontend wise. Having another better website is surely great, but I'm not sure how much that'll add to what we already have, and how that'll be appropriate to GSoC 2020 (rather than focusing on more urgent code oriented projects like previous year). Even for next year's GSoD I'd suggest we go for documenting more other projects in their respective repositories, or add more sections to the existing ones, through ReadTheDocs or something similar, as the team already planned(?).

@arunava001OS : Welcome to Aboucode . For contribution you must know python and then try to solve bugs/issues that suits you easy.
Arunava Sarkar
@arunava001OS
@Abhishek-Dev09 I am quite familiar with python . I am not so much with open source contribution. Can you tell me where to start from ?

@sbs2001 we need to start drafting some on a wiki page alright :)
some themes are likely to be around matching, binary analysis, rootfs analysis, analysis workflow/pipelines, and many more :)
@arunava001OS welcome! You can start with some of @AyanSinhaMahapatra execellent documentation to get familiar with things overall https://aboutcode.readthedocs.io/ and then check tickets in the projects
@sbs2001 and vulnerablecode too https://gitter.im/aboutcode-org/vulnerablecode
Philippe Ombredanne
@pombredanne
This message was deleted
@sbs2001 and @arunava001OS https://gitter.im/aboutcode-org/vulnerablecode is the channel to check out
as there are likely many smaller tasks available there
@Abhishek-Dev09 hey :wave: that's fine to direct new aspiring contributors to vulnerablecode for now, as it has a lot of smaller pending tickets
at least for a few weeks :)

@pombredanne 🤝 ok
