This September we'll be holding another of our quarterly issue bashes to allow the Community to get involved in helping to squash some issues in the GitLab Community Edition issue tracker. We have over 1500 GitLab contributors, and we are always looking for more people to join in and contribute to the project in any way that they can.

Of course, some lucky contributors will be rewarded with awesome swag! 🙌

We now have the issue bash landing page with all the information about how exactly the Issue Bash works. Please take a look there and provide any feedback to our feedback project or propose changes directly here!

When is it Going to Happen?

We'll kick it off at 00:01 UTC on Saturday, September 2nd and will keep it up until 23:59 UTC on Sunday, September 3rd.

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?

Please see the FAQ on the Issue Bash landing page to learn more about how to get involved.


We have some awesome swag ready for you:
