Get a shirt program

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that an open-source programmer of good ability must be in want of a free shirt - @Jane_Aust1n

From time to time some critical, useful or downright tedious bugs will be tagged shirt. By filing a pull request that closes a shirt bug, you get a limited edition Aristotle-MDR shirt. Its that easy.

To save making bugs for translations, if you provide a relatively complete and up to date translation for a language not yet translated, you can also get a shirt. It will probably look a bit like this:

A shirt!

Small print

  • Type, colour and quality of shirt not yet determined, but it will be free (and probably a nice light blue).
  • Limit 1 shirt per person. If you make a separate github account to try and fool me, I'll be annoyed, but you'll have probably closed two hard bugs so I'll forgive you pretty quickly.
  • No second prizes - if you are working on an issue, and someone beats you to the punch, you miss out.
  • No partial credit - you can make a pull request at any stage, but the shirt is claimed when the issue is closed.
  • First do no harm - PRs must pass the test suite, and coverage must not drop. If an issue incorporates a new feature, new tests need to be written.
