Hi, this is a first-timers-only issue. This means we've worked to make it more legible to folks who either haven't contributed to our codebase before, or even folks who haven't contributed to open source before.

If that's you, we're interested in helping you take the first step and can answer questions and help you out as you do. Note that we're especially interested in contributions from people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software!

We know that the process of creating a pull request is the biggest barrier for new contributors. This issue is for you 💝

If you have contributed before, consider leaving this one for someone new, and looking through our general help wanted issues. Thanks!

🤔 What you will need to know.

Nothing. This issue is meant to welcome you to Open Source :) We are happy to walk you through the process.

📋 Step by Step

  • 🙋 Claim this issue: Comment below. If someone else has claimed it, ask if they've opened a pull request already and if they're stuck -- maybe you can help them solve a problem or move it along!

  • 📝 Update the file .github/config.yml in the plots2 repository (press the little pen Icon) and edit the line as shown below.

See this page for some help in taking your first steps!

And just for anyone who's interested - you'll be creating a new file at /.github/config.yml to put this text into!

Hmm, i have a clue that this might cause some issues -- but no worries, I'm here to help anyone work through them!

It could also be the ` characters in there! Maybe we need to just use " quotes.

I'm looking for a first issue and it doesn't look like a PR was created for this. @martabeveridge, are you still working on it? Need some help?

I think either @emv or @aamarill can take this one since we haven't heard from @martabeveridge for a bit. I'm happy to help make some more first-timers issues too!

I'm going to give this one a try because I think #2398 may already be done.
