Students of ASPP contributing to Matplotlib

Hello everyone,

A bit of a last minute heads up?
I'm at the advanced scientific programming in python summer school, and the
instructor of the git & github lesson was looking for a package for
students to do a small contribution (to see the workflow). As in 2016, I
suggested small documentation changes to Matplotlib: we have selected 15
examples that could be improved, either in the title, either merging two
examples that showcase similar, or just a better description.
This means you might see 15 pull requests appear on the Matplotlib
repository, by people who have experience in scientific Python, but no
experience in contributing to open-source software. The students are
pair-programming, so the authors of commits of each the pull request might
not reflect an actual developer. The changes should be minimal, and I
expect to be able to review and merge pull requests fairly quickly if the
CI passes. If not, help in reviewing and merging is appreciated (but don't
feel obliged to)!

Thanks,
Nelle

They didn't go far enough in the lesson. Considering how much we are
hammering them with work during the rest of the week, I doubt that any of
the students will continue working on the assignments.
Thanks,
