My current employer is organizing regular "hack weeks" where engineers can
work on the projects of their choice. My team is using a lot of pydata
tools, including scikit image, so contributing to it would be
natural. Before I decide to add scikit image as a project, I want to make
sure it does not create more burden for the maintainers, the goal is to
help the project, and for my team's members to help them contributing to
OSS in "proper way".
I would have time to prepare the hack week, making sure we prepare good
PRs. While I never really contributed to the project, I should be able to
make sure PRs pass a certain level of quality, but I would need help from
one existing maintainer to figure out issues/areas where to focus.
Does that sound useful ?
The first hack week would be held from 23th to 27th March, in Tokyo.
Everybody would be remote because of the coronavirus, so except for time
difference, if it makes sense, people outside of my employer could join.
