#190 CommBlog idea: Fedora project on GitHub for Hacktoberfest
Closed: Not possible 3 years ago Opened 3 years ago by bcotton.

Hacktoberfest has started. It occurred to me last night that it might be good to put up a list of some Fedora upstreams that are hosted on GitHub for people who want to participate in Hacktoberfest while also helping Fedora. I don't have time to work on this, but I thought I'd toss it out there for someone else.

This is a great idea, but not one I have personal bandwidth for.

Discussed in 2018-10-10 meeting.

Since October is almost halfway over and we would still have to work on editing / publishing, we decided to close this as not possible for this year. We'll try to prepare early ahead next time.

Deliberately posting on a closed issue - no intent to reopen:

Note for next time. It may be worth exploring how OpenStack does read only mirroring of their git forge to Github. IIRC, they have the projects mirrored to GH and they have a bot that closes issues and PRs and directs them to their internal forge. However, when those PRs land on the internal forge, the email address gets credit on GH once the mirroring happens.

While this wouldn't directly help many Hacktober participants, this plus a better GH landing page for projects we host primarily there could drive engagement.

To do this, we need to start working on this now to figure out a plan and have a community conversation. I would expect this process to take 3-6 months to work out.
