Bioconda Collaboration Fest


From 2019-09-30 to 2019-10-01 - Add to your Calendar

We are organizing a new collaboration fest for Bioconda and its ecosystem. This time we would like to organise it globally and decentralised. Feel free to join us in Freiburg, join other events or organise your own local Bioconda Collaboration Fest.

There is a lot to do! Here are a few ideas:

* Linting of the entire repo
* adding more jinja templates to make auto-updates and review easier
* adding DOI /
* Reviewing package license, add missing ones
* Moving packages to conda-forge
* Documenting missing parts of Bioconda
* Missing tools - get started and contribute to Bioconda
* Go over all our issues
* Go over all the PRs

More information can be found here.
