Pull Requests

Hacktoberfest completion is measured in “Pull requests” approved and merged so let’s take a look at that first:

  • 20 The average amount of pull requests we received each year from 2018 to 2020
  • 329 The amount we have received during this year’s Hacktoberfest so far!

Not every year is weighed the same of course; Previous year contributions were much larger efforts (eg. an entire app or spoke or integration vs. a code-snippet).

This year’s goal was to lower the barrier to entry. Considering we have more than 16 times the amount of pull requests from previous years helps us feel like we have achieved that goal.

Other fun stats

  • 253 forks across all five repositories
