If you’re an open source maintainer, it’s time to get your repository ready for Hacktoberfest.
Communities grow during Hacktoberfest. Just ask Peter Tseng, now a core contributor of Exercism, which he found during Hacktoberfest. He said, “[it] was my first time being an open source maintainer (not counting projects in which I’m the only contributor)… I’ve learned a lot about working with others from that.”
Home Assistant also received almost 250 pull requests last year. That’s significant impact for one repository—not to mention the 92,259 other PRs that were opened across 29,287 other repositories.
Below are a few highlights from our Open Source Guides to help get you set up.
1. Run some maintenance on your documentation
Remove barriers from anyone who wants to get started quickly and add some clarity so that their contributions meet expectations.
2. Increase your searchability
You want to make it easy for the right people with the right skills to find you, right?
If you receive “spammy” pull requests, please let us know by applying the “invalid” label.
And that’s it! Happy Hacking.
