      • Many, many places in Jenkins that would benefit from automated test improvement

      • Technical writing - yes, include in the ideas
  • JEP for Java 8 end of support by Jenkins core

As we talked about in the past. My timezone doesn’t line up for direct mentoring, but can certainly help out. I would recommend reaching out to @saucelabs on twitter as I think they are still pro open source. I’ll reach out to my friends that work on appium and see if they know anyone in emca that would be interested in helping out.
