How is the training material maintained?


Each training topic and tutorial has one or two maintainers who act as editors.

They are responsible for making sure issues and change requests are looked at. They have the final say over what is included in the training material. But they are not responsible for writing/keeping up-to-date training material content or deciding what lessons ought to exist, both will be coming from the community.


This repository is using the following labels for issues, pull requests and project management:

  • Type
    • bug: errors to be fixed
    • improvement: enhancement to an existing functionality
    • feature: new functionality
    • discussion: discussion threads
    • question: often turn into discussion threads
  • Status
    • help-wanted: requests for assistance
    • newcomer-friendly: suitable for people who want to start contributing
    • work-in-progress: someone is working on this
    • review-needed: requests for review
  • Topic: each topic has its own label to easily relate the issue or pull request to the topic, but the label template-and-tools is used for questions/issues/pull requests related to the templates and tools rather than the lessons themselves.
