About possible projects I updated https://git.github.io/Outreachy-17/
but only the `git bisect` has been officially proposed as an Outreachy
project. I hope Dscho (Johannes) will be ok to submit one of the 2
others soon and to register himself as a mentor or co-mentor on some
of the projects.

The micro-project page you found is not up-to-date, so some
micro-projects we propose might have already been taken by GSoC
students last winter/spring. Sorry we didn't update the page or create
another one. Anyway there are some micro-projects there like "Add more
builtin patterns for userdiff" that are still valid and still good
small tasks to get started working on Git. And there are explanations
about how you can search for micro-projects (especially how to search
for #leftoverbits on the mailing list archive).

Thank you for your interest in contributing to Git,
Christian.
