As I stated here, I also think it would be great if the operation improves.

My MR got merged in Hackathon but gift mail is not coming yet.

Thank you @tnir and @ulwlu .

Might I suggest moving this to the relevant issue for gathering feedback for the Hackathon organization overall?

Thank you!



@cbacharakis Thank you, I just got your email and was able to submit! I’m looking forward to seeing gift! Besides, if I get another chance, I’ll contribute again regardless of the hackathon!
