Get help for your projects during hacktoberfest
Message ID:
Hacktoberfest is coming,, and lots
of people will be running around looking for PRs to get their tees. Let's
try and help them by creating a page with specific issues that we have
created specifically to be easy to PR for newcomers to Raku. Here's what
you need to do

1. Look up or create newcomer-friendly issue(s) in the repos. By
newcomer-friendly I don't only mean they need to be easy, also that they
need to include all the context needed to solve them: links to the file, pointers to module and language documentation, even
pointers to tutorials or articles that might be useful. These can very well
be *special* issues, that is, issues created only with that specific
purpose. Possibly, also, issues that can be "solved" several times so that
you don't need to close it when the first PR arrives.
2. Label it "hacktoberfest"
3. Send a PR here to get it included
into the webpage that we have created.
4. If you get a PR, react immediately and helpfully to it.

Let's try to show, with this, how friendly and welcoming the Raku community
is, and also attract interest and new coders to the language.
