Google Code-In 2014 - Announcement and Application

Are you interested in contributing to Drupal, but don't have the coding skills or experience necessary? Good news, now you have an awesome opportunity to contribute! Drupal is currently in the application process to be a part of the Google Code-In ( http://www.google-melange.com/gci/homepage/google/gci2014 ) contest for pre-university students ages 13-17. Our current need is building a list of quality tasks for students to work on during the contest. Please realize these don't have to be code related tasks, but should fit into one of the following five categories: Code, Documentation/Training, Outreach/Research, Quality Assurance, User Interface.

The application process started Tuesday October 28th and ends this Monday November 10th. Our goal is to submit an application with at least 50 quality tasks. Please contribue by adding task ideas directly our open to the public Google Spreadsheet ( https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1sFf5wnuCSkNauNw26-Kml0snplF4Fx0j... ) until midnight UTC-6 Sunday November 9th. After that, we need to see if Drupal is approved for the contest. If approved, we will need help creating, documenting, and mentoring an additional 100-200 tasks. The more tasks we setup the more opportunities we have to contribue to Drupal.

Did you know that organizations accepted into the GCI contest send the top two students on an all expense paid trip to Google in Mountain View with a parent/guardian ( http://www.google-melange.com/gci/document/show/gci_program/google/gci20... )? I know that I would be very excited as a young computer nerd to even have a chance to participate in such a program. As a community, we have a very good chance to make connections with young students who could end up spending a good amount of time focusing on Drupal after completing the contest. A good way to find quality contributors might be Drupal sending a few young people to California/GoogleHQ...

GCI Summary:
"Code-In can be thought of as the "Summer of Code" for pre-university students. Rather than specific coding projects, students age 13-17 take on smaller tasks in five categories: Code, Documentation/Training, Outreach/Research, Quality Assurance, User Interface."

    Módulo RDF por defecto ¿necesario? porque genera código extraño según test Rich Media de Google

    Buenas tardes amigos...

    Estaba usando el módulo RDF que viene por defecto con Drupal, pero al hacer el test de Rich Media vía http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets encuentro demasiados códigos raros como prefLabel (child), Concept, etc, (adjunto captura).

    Indagando observé que proviene del campo de tags que es afectado por defecto por el código RDF, cuando desactivo el módulo RDF se borran esos códigos molestos en el test de Rich Media.

    Pensaba yo que era la plantilla, pero usé incluso la plantilla por defecto de Drupal y sigo recibiendo el mismo código raro.

    Problemas con Robots.Txt de Drupal, Google bloqueó mi sitio

    Saludos amigos, hace dos días modifiqué robots.txt y agregué Disallow para una lista de spider o bots que usualmente afectan los sitios webs, agregue para ello los bots no deseados después de un # no entry #

    El problema es que de pronto Google me responde que he bloqueado el acceso a Google Bot desde User-agent: UbiCrawler, podrían explicarme como sería la codificación correcta=?

    #

    robots.txt

    #

    This file is to prevent the crawling and indexing of certain parts

    of your site by web crawlers and spiders run by sites like Yahoo!
