These sound like great ideas.

I would add that Outreachy is not just about technical contributions but
also about enabling the intern to become part of the group, possibly
serving as a model for contributors-to-be.  So I encourage you to
interact with the wider group in addition to your mentor, I think it can
be beneficial to all of us.

Thanks for joining!
