Thanks! Maybe we should have a page with Outreachy microprojects on
https://git.github.io/

I will see if I find the time to create one soon with the above information.

I just added a project in the Outreachy system about it. I would have
added the link but Outreachy asks to not share the link publicly. I am
willing to co-mentor (or maybe mentor alone if no one else wants to
co-mentor) it. Anyone willing to co-mentor can register on the
outreachy website.

Thanks for the other suggestions by the way.

I agree. Outreachy also suggest avoiding projects that have to be
discussed a lot or are not clear enough.

I like this one!

I agree as I don't think we will have enough mentors or co-mentors for
a big number of projects.

Best,
Christian.
