Creating a dynamic Get Involved page for your project

The Webdev team just created a new get involved page that lists all current mentored bugs that volunteers can work on for Mozilla sites. It also took about 10 minutes to set up.

You could do something similar for your own project by using the mediawiki-bugzilla extension and the mentored bug flag.

Take a look at the source for this wiki page to see how the mentored bugs are being called up and modify it to work for your own project.

  1. Hey that is really cool(!) and very easy to implement.
    I just changed the values (product, etc) and added it to a wiki page and worked.

    ==Mentored bugs==

    {
    “product”: “core”,
    “whiteboard”: “mentor”,
    “component”: “Disability Access APIs”,
    “resolution”: “—”
    }

    Have you changed your settings to require that readers be logged in to comment, or is that WordPress thing?
    It happened on another person’s (WP) blog also so I’m curious.

  2. Got striped a little when posting. Should be the following with opening and closing tags.

    ==Mentored bugs==
    bugzilla
    {
    “product”: “core”,
    “whiteboard”: “mentor”,
    “component”: “Disability Access APIs”,
    “resolution”: “—”
    }
    bugzilla
