About possible projects there is also
https://git.github.io/Outreachy-17/ but only the `git bisect` has been
officially proposed as an Outreachy project. I hope Dscho (Johannes
Schindelin) 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.
Please add him in CC, like I did in this email.

We usually ask Outreachy and Google Summer of Code applicants to first
work on a micro-project before starting to work on a bigger project.
There is https://git.github.io/SoC-2018-Microprojects/ for that though
it is not up-to-date. 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,
