Volunteers needed for Twisted project jobs

The Twisted project is a lot more than just writing code. Volunteers help sustain Twisted by reviewing tickets, writing documentation, answering questions on IRC, the mailing lists, and Stack Overflow, donating build servers, managing releases, packaging Twisted for distributions, sponsoring development, and more.

To everyone who contributes to the Twisted project in some way, thank you!

Twisted project jobs

A small group of dedicated Twisted developers have been doing maintenance work over the years that we'd like to start distributing across more of the community. These tasks include:
We've broken these tasks into bite-sized chunks, and you can find descriptions for them on the Project Jobs wiki page. Take a look, and please claim a task and how long you're up for doing it on the mailing list. If you have questions about any of them, don't hesitate to ask on the mailing list or IRC. You'll have lots of help getting set up.

Twisted Matrix Labs high scores

Are you competitive? Need a little extra incentive to contribute? I challenge you to get to the top of the monthly Twisted Matrix Labs high scores list:

Ticket openers, reviewers, and closers all get varying amounts of points. Note that a review banks you 1000 points, the most for a single ticket action, and we have a long review queue, so brush up on our patch review guidelines and dig in.
