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!

@AnthoniaOkafor Hi, just checking if you've gotten stuck on this at all, or if I could help in any way? Thanks! We are starting to request that contributors show some sort of activity towards a first-timers-only issue after claiming it within a week because there is high demand for them. (whether that is asking for more time, help, opening a PR, etc.)
Also @EngrEric , I remember you mentioned about the mysql error in gitter channel . If you are still having that same issue then you can update your local master branch by
After that, you can update your feature-branch i.e., branch on which you have worked on using
If you haven't made any feature-branch till now, you can do that by:(Do this after updating local master branch only otherwise you have to rebase the branch formed in this step)
@AnthoniaOkafor if the changes you make are still relevant to the first PR you opened then continue pushing them there. All you have to do is add the changes to that branch and push it
Otherwise you create a new branch for a different feature or something addressing a different issue and push that up. Work on one branch will not effect work on the other and your local repo will update to reflect which branch you are on.
