As Hacktoberfest nears its end, I can see that we're going to need help cleaning out the backlog. There are likely many moot PRs, others that just need a space added, and some where the proposed resource needs a bit of investigation. If you'd like to help leave a not here and I'll invite you to a slack channel or something like that where we can organize and discuss.

If you'd like to help leave a not here

Is that meant to say "note here"? If so, I wanted to help clean up after Hacktoberfest was over anyway, so I'd be down if it's not a bother.


slack channel or something like that

By the wording, it sounds like the Slack channel doesn't exist yet? You can use whatever you feel is appropriate, but just wanted to put forward a suggestion. Matrix might be a cool solution instead. It's free and open-source, end-to-end encrypted, and it's a standard, so people can use their preferred client to interact ie Element, Thunderbird, or Fractal etc

@dev4s @brunomguimaraes what would you like to work on? I'm not sure how familiar you are with F-P-B. Happy to suggest things based on your interests.

@eshellman F-P-B was one of my main sources of knowledge back in the day and I just want to return the favor.
I speak english and portuguese(PT-BR)

@brunomguimaraes The pt-BR courses list is one of our biggest and has seen a lot of recent additions, including a number of pending. Right now the priority is to clear out the pending - often the new contributors don't know to look at the linter output or to fix conflicts - friendly comments are appreciated.

@eshellman I speak English and Polish (my main language), so I can help with those PRs. I was using similar repos, like the Awesome-awesomeness or Awesome. And as @brunomguimaraes I want to return some of the favor ;). Also, my main role is being a developer ;)
