Help me with my project!

Reps portal

Currently there is a lot going on with the Participation team tooling and the Reps portal devs need help to fix bugs and add new features.

They can devote some time to mentor new people to get involved with the portal development.

Check the repository and current bugs.


The new bug triage tool is now live. The idea is that users sign up to get a list of untriaged bugs to move them to the proper category and make them actionable.

Give it a try and let them know what do you think.

What’s up with Council this week

  • Mentor selection criteria: The feedback has been discussed and a final draft will be shared soon.
  • Update of the Budget SOP to make it clearer and easier to read it
  • Blog post for ROM of July.
  • Working together with Francisco to be updated about future, important events and get more background from him
  • Helping out with the Participation Team Goals for Q3
