Utilize this wiki to document, add, and organize potential tasks for Google's Code-In 2016 contest. We're hoping for at least 100 tasks for our application due sometime in October. If you want to mentor the task, add your name. If you DON'T want to be a mentor, leave the field blank. Current goal is to have tasks in the expected 5 required categories for our application...

*Code: Tasks related to writing or refactoring code
*Documentation/Training: Tasks related to creating/editing documents and helping others learn more
*Outreach/Research: Tasks related to community management, outreach/marketing or studying problems and recommending solutions
*Quality Assurance: Tasks related to testing and ensuring code is of high quality
*User Interface: Tasks related to user experience research or user interface design and interaction

Hey Matthew, I've been in touch with a local high school who're interested in some Drupal training. I figure it might be good to try and involve them in GCI. I'd be willing to mentor the local kids. Is there any info I can send the school on this year's program?

GCI info should be released in a few weeks
