Recognize Debian-Med contributions via ORCID
The DebianMed team packages and improves many biomedical software applications. Many contributors are academics and we wish to increase the number of academics who participate in package maintenance and other team activities. We can achieve this by reporting their contribution in the same way reviewing for journals is reported: via ORCID profiles https://orcid.org/blog/2017/09/14/peer-review-orcid-update
1. Collect ORCIDs of Debian contributors using the public API to connect them with their salsa.debian.org accounts.
2. On a monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis: generate a report of all contributions during that period and publish on Zenodo with correct metadata
3. The contribution is listed on the researchers' profiles alongside their other outputs.
Confirmed Mentor: Michael R. Crusoe

Confirmed co-mentors: TBD
Deliverables of the project: 1. ORCID collection in salsa.debian.org 2. Initial report generated and stored in Zenodo and visible on ORCID profiles. 3. Regular report generation service installed on a DebianMed server.
Desirable skills: Some web development, general coding skills
What the intern will learn: At least 2-3 lines telling the applicants the skills they will develop and how they will improve Debian. Do not focus on the technologies, rather use something that could motivate the prospective interns to take on your project.
Application tasks: some test tasks that you want your applicants to complete during the application process. This helps us make sure the applicants are motivated to do the project, and to assess mentor/intern communication during the application step.
