> Volunteer opportunity finder

> Looking for a way to get involved in open source, but don't know where to

> At PyCon, I led an open space where some of us tried finding things to  
> work on. We found "easy" documentation bugs in Python, and wrote up  
> patches. Within a few weeks, our patches were comitted to the Python 
> core.
> Contributors to hundreds of projects (including Python itself) label bugs 
> as good for new contributors. Those bugs are an opportunity for you to  
> find a new project to contribute to in open source, so try browsing them  
> at https://openhatch.org/search/?q=&toughness=bitesize
> Do you run an open source project? You can add your project to our index  
> by clicking "Add a bug tracker." If you want to get new contributors more 
> easily, try tagging bugs in your bug tracker as "bitesize."We're always  
> looking for more projects to include in our crawls.
