Hello Quim and others:
I just posted three suggestion there, please feel free to edit mercilessly:
[[Manual:Pywikibot|PyWikibot]] is a Python-based framework to write
bots for MediaWiki. The project just moved its bug database to
Wikimedia's Bugzilla and there are many potential tasks to pick from.
Improvement of interacting with Wikidata] including redesigning
interwiki.py and improving harvest_templates.py
*Porting scripts and tasks of compat to core
*Making PWB compatible with Python 3 (forward compatibility).
*Improvement in efficiency of PWB when It's interacting with WMF Labs.
IMO, the first and the second are really important. I'm looking
forward to knowing others' opinion about this :)

Google Code-In is a contest to introduce
pre-university students (ages
13-17) to the many kinds of contributions that make open source software
development possible. Students must complete tasks (see examples), one
at a time. The Google Code-in 2013 contest runs from November 18, 2013
to January 6, 2014.
PyWikibot could be a great project for this program, under the Wikimedia
umbrella. A relatively isolated environment, Python language, plenty of
little bugs and enhancement requests in Bugzilla, potential for
improvements in documentation and tutorials, a vibrant community
including many potential mentors...
What do you think?
We are currently preparing the proposal to apply by Oct 28, next Monday.
If you can add at least 5 tasks to the wiki page linked above then you
will be ready for the next level - if we are one of the organizations
selected on November 1.
If you have questions just ask, here or at the related talk page.
