Hi friends! Due to health-related issues, I won’t be able to send the emails to all the winners before the 5th of February.
I will update the post with proper links to sure profiles and an updated Website section (it’s currently wrong) as soon as possible.
Another GitLab hackathon is completed, and I would like to begin by celebrating our community contributions! Congratulations to everyone who participated and contributed to GitLab.
This time, we had 208 submitted MRs, from 74 participants across 14 projects such as GitLab, Omnibus, GitLab Development Kit, CNG, Runner, and more. As of today, 160 MRs have been merged, which translates to 74% of the MRs submitted. The Hackathon’s Bitergia Dashboard has more information about the performance of the hackathon over the years.
This time we didn’t count any MRs contributing to Docs, as we will be hosting a separate Docs Hackathon starting next week.
Following the point system that we introduced in the previous Hackathons, we calculated the points each contributor gathered based on whether their MRs were contributing towards the existing issues linked in the Hackathon page.
Please join me in congratulating all Hackathon contributors:
The winners mentioned above will receive an email with a link to claim their prizes by the 27th of January.
The next Docs Hackathon will occur between the 23rd and 27th of January 2023.
An excellent place to start is the Contributing to GitLab page, where you can learn how to contribute to GitLab code, documentation, translation, engagement, and UX design.
