Don't know how to code but still want to contribute to open projects? Consider open street maps!
OSM is the community built map of the world. Anyone can edit the map and all the data is freely available and usable in any of your projects.
Start in your own neighborhood. Maybe your street is missing or named wrong. Update the corner shop hours. Map the parks or sidewalks. Anything helps and many hands make light work!

Update to the dpaste.sh helper script - it now uses $DPASTE_API_TOKEN if set. https://hg.sr.ht/~paulbissex/dpaste-tools/browse/dpaste.sh?rev=tip
Example use case: You're in your team Slack or an IRC channel helping somebody fix a bug. They post a dpaste item with the problem code. You view the item, duplicate it and make the changes it needs, then post the diff link.
The diff feature is now live. Click the "diff" button above an item to use it. You can choose any item from your history to diff it against. Example: https://dpaste.com/8WPCDRFHL/diff/ABCD23456
Cool online GPX track editor that uses dpaste.com for its sharing feature. Check it out! https://opoto.github.io/wtracks/
Made some improvements to the geolocation lookup on the "About" page. Using Django's bundled GeoIP2 feature (http://bit.ly/geo-django) instead of rolling my own made the implementation shorter, more robust, and -- thanks to local datasets from MaxMind -- faster.
