[petsc-dev] PETSc janitorial work

I think that there is quite a bit of low-skills / time consuming work which is a poor use of the main developers’ time: syncing C / Fortran / python headers, improving the tests coverage, proofreading the manual and man pages, etc.

I’d be more than happy to help organizing a virtual or in-person event focussing on such janitorial tasks, provided that we can get support from some senior developers to help and review. This could but does not have to be coordinated with the next pets users meeting.

Any thoughts?
