Where are the projects in the looking for contributions??

It's and you should tag your issues with that label so we can find you and contribute to your projects :heart_cybre:

@vickysteeves I think we'll tag up #Florence for some of this. Just haven't had time to talk about it.

@downey
I block nonfree JS. It makes it a pain, but not impossible. There are many good projects on GitHub though, I do wish they would go self-hosted though.

@masterofthetiger @downey

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).

@kensanata yeah!! Many people add on "Hacktoberfest" to the "good-first-issue" tag in this month so they get lots of contributions

This is the initiative: hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com
