Details for the annual Magento+Adobe Squashtoberfest community initiative
We are gearing up for Squashtoberfest 2019, and this year we want to include both Magento and Adobe repositories in the fun! In summary:
- To qualify, submit 5 or more pull requests during October 2019 to any open repositories
under github.com/adobe or github.com/magento
- Please note that these pull requests should be of high quality! Adding punctuation, rewriting sentences in documentation, or other such similar patches that do not provide added value to the project will not be counted! It is always best to tackle open issues in the project instead of sending a pull request without first having a conversation about a changeset with the project maintainers.
- At the end of the month we will crunch the numbers to see who qualified.
- We will get in touch with qualifying contributors to get their shirt sizes and then ship them cool swag!
Frequently Asked Questions
Where Can I Find Good Issues To Tackle?
For Magento repositories, the Community Backlog is a great place to look for issues needing confirmation (Ready for QA column), issues ready for development (Ready for Dev column) or good first issues.
For Adobe repositories, doing a GitHub search for Good First Issues is a good place to look.
What Is The Best Way To Get Involved?
Once you've identified an issue you think you can help out with, comment on the issue and mention you'd like to tackle it. Work with the project maintainers to get the issue assigned to you.
How Do I Send A Pull Request?
Each project is different. Your best bet is to read each project's contribution
guidelines - these are usually documented in the project repo as
CONTRIBUTING.md (or sometimes it exists under
projects also have a pull request template enabled, so when you open a pull
request, you'll be presented with a checklist of things to prepare.
How Do I Know If I've Qualified?
In November, we will run an analysis on GitHub activity and identify folks who have issued 5 or more pull requests to either Magento or Adobe repositories during the month of October. We will file an issue in this repository, mentioning the qualifying contributors by their handle and asking them to get in touch with the Magento Community Engineering team to share t-shirt size and shipping address with us.
Where Can I Chat With Other Magento Community Members?

Is This Event Related To Hacktoberfest?
