Hi all! I'm happy to announce the new version of the OpenHatch volunteer 
opportunity finder.

Volunteer opportunity finder

Looking for a way to get involved in open source, but don't know where to 
start? Try browsing bugs in the OpenHatch volunteer opportunity finder: 

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 

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.

About OpenHatch

We're a website for helping people find ways to get involved in free, open 
source software. We also run a profile engine where you can tell your 
story in open source, emphasizing all the ways you've been involved in 
projects. (Successful open source projects take more than just code!)
