hard agree! I like Hacktoberfest because it gets newcomers into open source; I wish Digital Ocean would expand the places they'd accept those 4 merge requests from (right now it's just GitHub, but they admitted they don't know why it couldn't be expanded out, except I guess that # of free tshirts would grow a lot and it's a lot of $$)
@downey one would hope but as it is, GH dominates for # of repositories (I have no idea why Digital Ocean singles out GitHub and neither do they; I asked when I was at their office on Tuesday)
@vickysteeves I wasn’t aware that there was a special tag! 😨 I have used “good first issue” and “help wanted” ever since GitHub started recommending those (to no avail in my projects, thought).
