Thanks so much! That makes a lot of sense. I actually did a PR for a documentation issue. It was just a comma in the wrong place but made me trip over the sentence when I was trying to read it. They actually told me they weren’t going to merge it because it’s trivial and will probably end up getting changed again. I’m assuming that’s the type of people to stay away from.

Yea, I would consider that a yellow flag; as there is a mismatch between what the maintainer views as meaningful and what you do.

Good luck!
