there used to be a “quickfix” label, but (in part due to the JIRA -> GitHub move) it was incorrectly applied to way too many tickets, so it’s been deleted. (history/details on that: https://github.com/scala/scala-dev/issues/384)
there is now a GitHub-wide standard to have a “good-first-issue” label. so we have one now:
but at the moment, no issues have this label yet.
so, an invitation to the community. can you help us identify easy issues that are suitable for newcomers to open-source Scala work? (which also makes them suitable to veterans looking for something that won’t take too long…)
if you find a candidate issue, please comment on the issue and say “is this is a good-first-issue?” (or words to that effect), and someone with the access to attach labels will (hopefully!) label the issue for you.
or, if you have the necessary access, go ahead and label the issue yourself. (some community folks already have that access; if we’ve overlooked an established contributor, contact me)
