There are currently over 6000 open issues on GitLab CE, and we need your help to sort them out! We have over 1500 GitLab contributors, and we want everyone to be able to find issues to work on.
Of course, some lucky contributors will be rewarded with awesome swag! 🙌
Our last Issue Bash helped us to close over 100 issues and make lots of improvements to the categorization of existing issues.
When is it going to happen?
We'll kick it off at 00:01 UTC on Saturday, March 4th and will keep it up until 23:59 UTC on Sunday, March 5th.
Who can contribute?
At GitLab, everyone can contribute!
This is your chance to get involved! Most of the tasks don't require technical expertise, therefore, non-technical community members are definitely welcome and prize worthy!
How do you get involved?
There are four main things we need from our task force:
- Track issues that can be easily closed
- Categorize issues
- Fix known bugs and pain points
- Ship existing feature proposals
Check out the Issue Bash Proposal to find out how to get started.
We have some awesome swag ready for you:
- Five T-shirts
- Four pairs of pajama pants
- Three Moleskine notebooks
- Two PocketCHIPs
- One messenger bag (filled with all the stuff listed above!)
If we solve twice as many issues as we did in the last Issue Bash (> 200), we'll give away a mystery prize as well! 🎉
Users making any contributions to the project that fall into the above categories, between the start and end times of the event, will be entered into the random draw to win a prize. The contributions will be collated after the end of the event and prize winners, drawn at random, will be contacted in the weeks that follow.
Questions? More info?
GitLab team members @markglenfletcher, @ClemMakesApps, and the core team member @haynes will be on hand to answer questions and close issues.
