We noticed after the launch of the Google Highly Open Participation Contest someone had added a windmill task to the Python GHOPC task list. A fairly simple one, create a screencast, something we’ve been trying to do for months and just haven’t gotten to — just like about a dozen other documentation related tasks. The screencast is available in avi format, playable in VLC.
It turned out really nice and we’re impressed with how quickly we’re seeing people do work through the GHOPC. I was so impressed in fact that I applied to be a mentor in the Python GHOPC and was accepted yesterday.
Special thanks to Python GHOPC, Titus Brown who seems to be running it, and taricorp (we would post your full name if you like but all your student page has is your username).
