As one does at three o'clock in the morning, I started a funky side project.

I started a project called 1pr

I will be accepting one pull request per day to this repo. If I am busy one day, I will accept two the next day and so forth. The current output of the project is this page.

I will provide guidance for the project and offer my opinion, but I will not write code and I will limit my choices to open pull requests. I may resolve simple conflicts in order to merge a pull request, but I will mostly just press the merge pull request button once per day.

Shortly after posting this project, I got four PRs and merged this one. It changed the home page:

From this:

To this:

Yay!

This was a terrific first pull request and got me excited about this project because it immediately made the project into sort of a learning experience for newer programmers. That's something I am very passionate about, but I literally had zero ideas when I started this. As I mentioned in the title, it was 3am and I just felt like starting something.

I am thinking of today as day two even though it's the same calendar day as day one, technically. It's one sleep later, and I look forward to merging PR #2.

Awesome idea. Eventually there should be a visual timeline of how this looks.

So community driven project, moved forward by pull requests? I'm down to try this. As bad as this sounds, I almost never contribute to protects these days.

I am interested to see how this will turn out.

What's the server environment like? (Possible to add anything on the back end?)
