> Hello Christian,
> Thanks for your interest in our Google Season of Docs projects. It is
> great to hear from you!
> If you are interested, I would advise working on the following:
> - Familiarizing yourself with the NumPy docs and the workflow for building
> them (https://numpy.org/devdocs/dev/howto-docs.html)
> - Reading NEP 44 to have an idea of the current vision and focus for the
> docs (https://numpy.org/neps/nep-0044-restructuring-numpy-docs.html)
> - Working on your own proposal, so we can analyze it later.
> You have until July 8 to do this, and if you need help or have questions
> about any of the above, please get in touch so we can help. Make sure you
> get in touch with the mentors directly by sending your message to
> numpy-scipy-gsod at googlegroups.com . Any information you need about the
> program is in the official GSoD website (
> https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs), and in our proposal (
> https://github.com/numpy/numpy/wiki/Google-Season-of-Docs-2020-Project-Ideas).
> Welcome!
