Pull Requests

Last year’s goal was to lower the barrier to entry. By October 21st of last year, we had already received 329 pull requests. This year we challenged the community to participate in projects that required a little bit more effort, and by October 18th of this month, we have already received 298 pull requests!

The numbers may feel similar but considering that the majority of participation are higher quality, this is a great improvement over last year!

Other fun stats

  • 279 forks across all repositories
  • 153 unique contributors across all repositories
  • 10 participating repositories. Last year, almost 90% of pull requests by this point in the month were in the Code-Snippets repository. So far this month, only about 30% of pull requests are to Code-Snippets, with the rest spread out across 3 other repositories. People are trying new things!
