Hi everyone!

We, at Public Lab, are known for welcoming new contributors into the Open Source world but a number of times, newcomers were not able to find first-timers-only issues to start their journey or face troubles making their first contribution with us.

Reasons being:

  1. Lack of first-timers-only issues
  2. Struggle in finding the good issue to start and lack of enough support?

We are working on both of the above aspects to support and help the maximum number of people to take their first step in their OSS journey with us, through our various projects but we need more support for this. So, this is a call to all the Public Lab members to try and create a first-timers-issue for someone who wants to start their journey and waiting for an FTO being assigned to them.

If you are interested in creating first-timers-only issue, follow these instructions:

  1. Browse through the publiclab.org and see if there's a bug which can be easily solved
  2. Solve this issue but don't create a PR this time, instead create a FTO issue
  3. Click on this link to start creating a new issue
  4. We follow a specific template for FTO issues, so copy the template from here
  5. Edit the issue body to add the goal of the issue, code snippet required, file to be updated, add screenshots(if required). Don't add code snippet required to solve in case, the issue just requires minor HTML or CSS change or equivalent.
  6. Add a catchy and relevant title to the issue but don't include "FTO" , "first-timers-only" or equivalent in title
  7. Get the issue you just created labeled by mentioning @publiclab/reviewers or @publiclab/plots2-reviewers.
  • If you have labeling privileges, feel free to do so yourself but ensure that you have used FTO template.
  • If you are not able to mention the above-mentioned teams, and doesn't have labeling privileges, then drop a line in Gitter channel - https://gitter.im/publiclab/publiclab or mention @jywarren @gauravano @SidharthBansal and any one of us will surely follow-up with you. You can also mention any other member, you can think of with labeling privileges.
  1. It's time to invite a new contributor to your issue. If there are unchecked names in the below list, then those people are still looking for FTO issue to start with, so mention them in your FTO by writing - This issue is created for @[contributor-name]. Thanks!
    Also, if you see, a new contributor is looking for an issue, feel free to point them to your FTO.

Contributors looking for first-timers-only (FTO) issues

To first-time contributors: If you are looking for FTO and want your name to be added to the above list then, feel free to comment below to show your interest. If you are looking for working on specific language/framework, mention that too in your comment.

To Public Lab members who have comment edit privileges: Please add names of newcomers who have shown into for FTO in below comments. Also, add the names of other newcomers who are looking for FTO and shown their interest by commenting in other issues.

For any query, feel free to ask below or at Public Lab gitter channel - https://gitter.im/publiclab/publiclab

Thank you!

Can an issue similar to the one I'm commenting on be opened in IS is and can it be pinned by someone is my question. IS also has a shortage of FTOs.

Also I think all of the fto-candidate issues should be reformatted into proper first-timers-only issues

@gauravano I have opened an issue in IS publiclab/image-sequencer#842. I have based it on your template for this issue. I hope you don't mind.

@harshkhandeparkar Hey, thanks! And sorry I forgot to mention that ^^ Ruby is great, I'm not too experienced with it but I'm up for the challenge! Anything Java or Javascript would also be great.

@coderbeetle I will add your name here but there's also another one of these issue in one of publiclab's JS repos 'image-sequencer'. Shall I add your name there as well?

Hi @dannomayer, I've added your name to the above list and we'll mention you as soon as task matching your preference pops up. Also, as many of the FTO tasks are the frontend issues or documentation, so maybe you would be interested in taking up a little bit complex task? If that so, let me know the language or framework you prefer. Thanks!
