     50
     51Different programs and strategies were discussed to try to take advantage of some of the initiatives around open source projects and internship/mentoring programs
     52
     53- Google summer of code
     54  - Can be useful as recruiting tool - e.g 1 in 5 might want to keep doing it
     55  - 1 in 5 will disappear with no output
     56  - the rest will do something but will not be usable after
     57  - lot of time cost and short term loss, only long term return
     58
     59- Other category of programs:
     60  - Bounty Source
     61    - Crowdfund for issue tickets
     62    - Concern of substandard code for bounties
     63
     64- Areas where volunteers can be useful other than coding
     65    - Helping other people use Tor
     66- Encourage bounties for experimental tasks, where it's not a huge project/loss...
     67- Where are we getting good volunteer interaction?
     68    - network team
     69    - people tend to pick for themselves
     70- Couple of engineering days to tag/organise tickets
     71
     72- Projects run challenges to get people familiar with the code   
     73    - puzzle
     74    - short series of challenges
     75    - for fun exercises
     76
     77- Improved fuzzing coverage
     78    - bugs are found within a day - but it tells people where to get security
     79- Improved test coverage
     80    - better to do this for unit tests
     81- As an exercise to Tor
     82
     83- Code Triage (https://www.codetriage.com/)
     84   
     85- Stalled tickets in needs revision can be good candidates for tasks to get started/help out
     86    - fix patches
     87    - e.g https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/query?status=needs_revision&changetime=..Mar+1%2C+2019&col=id&col=summary&col=status&col=owner&col=type&col=priority&col=milestone&order=priority
