How about having a page that does a search on the issues of the repositories of participants of the 24PR, and makes a list of issues marked by label "24PullRequests".

Users who want help with their projects, can create issues with this label and receive help from participants of the 24PR.

I'm having trouble finding projects that really need help. Large projects such as Bower, AngularJS etc. already have many people helping, I would like to find projects that really need help.

Can we use a more generic label like "help wanted" please.

Contributor

@andrew 👍

I think we should keep only 1 word. to avoid typing errors. Do not know if the Github API is smart. Do not know if it differs "Help wanted", "help wanted" and "Help Wanted". So just 1 word, lowercase will be better. how about just "help"

@andrew @luanmuniz I think it would be worth writing up a guide to encourage people to tag projects correctly with documentation, design, enhancement etc. easy pick is something I've seen somewhere, being tasks that don't require in depth knowledge or understanding of the project.

@despo We can make something like category of tags:
Front-end = [html,css,fornt-end, frontend etc]
Enhancement = [new feature, feature, enhacement etc]
Design = [design, photoshop, visual etc]

We can filter by this categories and people can help improve the list of tags in a category.

But i think we can keep things small for now, just one tag (the help tag).
Once the main feature is ready we can think about this guideline and the other features and people can send PR with new labels and filters.

Without giving the game away completely, I'm going to be implementing a feature as part of GitHub that uses the help-wanted label, so that's why I suggested that ;)

@andrew oooh ok, that sounds like a good idea, then - supporting the new feature from day 1 ;)

@luanmuniz @andrew
help-wanted is certainly an important feature. 👍
Its worth keeping the site up and running even after christmas. example: pullrequests.com

We are interested in implementing the feature help-wanted
I can request our developers to contribute.

I guess we can close this by now. A few people are already using help wanted label :)
