Right now, to get credit for making a contribution to one of our GitHub repos as part of their instructor training checkout, trainees need to email us a link to their contribution, and then we manually record it in AMY.
To make this easier, we are proposing using GitHub's API to search for any contribution a pending trainee has made to our GitHub repos. We would take the latest contribution (if multiple ones exist) and count that towards the trainee's checkout, so they do not have to email us.
I can write a script that pulls all pending trainees' info from AMY, and checks it against our GitHub repos. @pbanaszkiewicz If we had a csv with the following fields, would it be possible to set up a function to import into AMY? If not, what else might we need?

Thanks for bringing up the homework type. I didn't mention that we are also moving away from having lesson program specific contributions, and allowing trainees to contribute to any active Carpentries repo. So we could do, as you suggested, have a "Homework" type - and then we'd want to deprecate the lesson program specific options.
