Hey all, it is October again and the Hacktoberfest by Digital Ocean has started.
However, this year is a bit different, if a github repository wants to participate in the hacktoberferst it needs to explicitly opt-in by setting the tag
hacktoberfest for the repo.
I really think that the hacktoberfest incentivizes people to contribute to OSS Software - at least this is true for me as i have already prepared a couple of PRs just for this October.
On freenode in
#nixos-dev there was already a bit of discussion, especially regarding signal vs noise ratio and the general consensus was that nixpkgs could at least give it a shot.
