Hi, I’m @worldofpeace. A primary role I’ve assumed in nixpkgs, not publicly, is welcoming
and offering guidance to our new contributors. This is where I find I can best utilize myself at the moment.
If I notice someone has submitted their first PR to nixpkgs I go out of my way to ensure that their change is noticed. This frequently entails a lot of PR review from me, or me helping arrange an appropriate reviewer for them. (pm’s are always welcome).
So this is really a behavior that I would like to impart to established members of nixpkgs.
Having the presence of new people is something nixpkgs will really benefit from, so it’s really
worth your time to assist someone else in finding their home in nixpkgs if they’re interested.
If this kind of support wasn’t extended to me I wouldn’t be able to do these things, so it’s really worth it.
