Gsoc Matplotlib Project on Categorical Axes

Hi I am Pratik, an undergraduate at IIT Kanpur in India. I would really
like to work on the matplotlib project on Categorical Axes that is
mentioned on the ideas page for NumFocus and Matplotlib. I have been using
matplotlib for my project and coursework for the last few months and i
understand the problem. However, since i am relatively new to open source
development, i would really appreciate it if someone could drop some
pointers to possible next steps for me.
Thank you.

Thanks, Pratik, and welcome.

The best thing you can do is just jump in and find a small task that you
could submit a pull request for. This could be either a simple issue we
already have, or something that interests you (and doesn't have to be
related to your GSoC project). We have a guide for using git with
matplotlib [here](http://matplotlib.org/devel/gitwash/index.html) and other
developer information [here](http://matplotlib.org/devel/index.html).

We look forward to seeing you on Github!

Cheers,
Mike
