Profile parser to get involved in Debian
Project name: Profile parser to get involved in Debian
Description: Many people come and tell us, on a stand, "I don't know how to contribute". As the debian-women group has some communication support, we show them. Its system of sponsorship seems a good idea but not highlighted enough.
The idea is now to establish a "profile parser": the person answers to some questions, then according to this, a customized way appears to know the doc and resources he/she needs at the relevant time on the website or the wiki. The "roadmap" or "career map" in Debian would depends on the level of the person in the project (auto-declarative) and his/her tastes.
The applicant would help for programming the automated tool so that people to go on the relevant URLS according to what they are and search. 1. Answer questions; 2. Here the results for now, then her are your possible prospectives, and the associated URLs. He would then provide the relevant sections or URL, with the idea to be the most precise possible.
People thus would know what they can do immediately and what kind of recognition they could have in this way in Debian, with optional other alternative ways during their Debian life.
The tool would be the least global possible, the most precise possible, to avoid persons to be lost or worry by the massive information.
https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Welcome/BrainStorming show the main questions ideas, and the "roadmap" of such tool. We will decide according to the applicant skills whether the tool is on a wiki format or the website.
https://www.debian.org/intro/help gives the resource we will need to examine to mention the relevant link or section as result on the utility
