What happens when you combine 337 students, 20+ mentors, and an endless volley of tasks? During the time from November 2016 to January 2017, 368 Haiku tasks were successfully completed. The seventh year of Google’s Code-In, and the seventh for Haiku as a mentoring organization was a grand success.
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.haiku-os.org/news/2017-02-05_gci_2016_wrap_up_report/

Too bad it came to an end (GCI)
We could try to participate in hacktoberfest as a replacement? But someone should take care of preparing a list of tasks (it’s easier than for GCI, just tag some tasks on the haikuports github repository) and registering us with the organizers
If so (I’m in for it) we need to gather some mentors that could make up a list and try to do some mutual agreement on what we want them to work on
