We had our Hacktoberfest representation from the community last year and albeit we started late to prep for it, it was a success. Now that we are almost starting from a month before, we probably should do it again - what do you folks think?
Things to take care of
- Get an inventory of repositories at GitHub which can be potential candidates to Hacktoberfest contributions
- Create and tag self-contained and well-documented issue tickets as
hacktoberfestfor repos on GitHub
- Connect with the design team to help create posters/banners to promote the community’s Hacktoberfest representation
- Possibly bring in the awesome folks from the Community Outreach Revamp and have their two cents about this
- Set up push mirror from stub GitHub repositories to actual Pagure repositories in order for the participant’s PR to be counted
- Reach out to folks with repos at the Easyfix page asking them to tag their existing
- Prep slide deck / talk for an event that can go as long as 90 minutes, with multiple speakers to onboard new folks to community
This follows up the ticket created under the
Fedora-Joinproject of the
fedora-joinnamespace here Issue #257: Fedora's Representation for Hacktoberfest 2021 - Fedora-Join - Pagure.io
I would love to hear from you as to what you think about it and how can possibly do it better!
