As I begin work on my own open-source project and create pull requests for Hacktoberfest, I wanted to share what I think makes a great open-source repo.
I boiled down what I want to see in an open source project down into three points. Here they are:
Please don't make me go to your bug reporting site that was last updated in 1995. Staying on GitHub makes my life much easier and allows me to see all of my contributions in one spot, which makes it easier to create a resume.
Don't slap the Hacktoberfest tag on your report and then run for the hills. Review pull requests and issues. If you can't help out a user right away, tell them that you are working on it.
If an issue gets denied, tell me why it was denied and how I can improve in the future. That helps everyone out!
