Hacktoberfest for some is a motivating factor for starting (or returning) to contributing to open source. I know the repo has had a “hacktoberfest” label in the past. I was wondering if more issues should be labeled to keep the repo in a ‘participating’ status?
I think that it is better to wait for joining it until DigitalOcean solves the problem.
Looks like they are trying to reduce the spam.
It did and https://github.com/gohugoio/hugoDocs is participating.
That’s great to see!
Unfortunately, it looks like if you work on docs via gohugoio/hugo it doesn’t show up for hacktoberfest.
But hopeful it does bring some more people to this wonderful project.
I have added the hacktoberfest to the main code repo, too.
