I opened a PR three weeks ago to Hugo Docs and I haven’t received an answer to whether or not it was good enough to be pulled.
Contributors are really busy and they are volunteering their time to keep the repositories going, I value and understand that. But to be honest I’m a bit frustrated because the change was a 1-line phrase rewording just to see how the PR system worked. I expected it to serve as experience for my next contribution but now I’m worried that I’ll spend time on something that is going to end up marked as stale.
I think that it might be easier to handle all the Hugo-related issues, docs included, on a single repository.
There is much more activity on the main repo than in the documentation repo. There are more (closed) issues and PRs on much more difficult topics than documentation. Wouldn’t it be more effective to keep the docs within the main project, where there’s a better chance that someone will handle it?
