Hacktoberfest 2017 is running for this month. The idea is simple:

- Make pull requests on public repos hosted on GitHub
- If you make 4 PRs that get merged before the end of October, you get a free T-shirt :D

For maintainers, this is a great way to get some attention on your projects. Just tag some of your issues with "hacktoberfest" and it qualifies. I've already asked Dread Knight to get on it for Ancient Beast. I've tagged a few issues for C-Dogs SDL, and got a tiny bit of attention already ;)

For everyone else, this is a good excuse to contribute to open source, and of course, I'm happy to help if you're interested in contributing to C-Dogs SDL :)

As of writing there's 9000 issues closed already, that's a lot of people hacking away! Get on it right now folks

I had a look a this cool idea... Then I've had a look at my GitHub repositories... ahem... writing issues eligible is an art, really. None of my issues are the issues someone can "drop-by and fix". If there's something simple it is faster for me to fix it without creating an issue. But if something is complex (requires knowledge of game architecture, ideas behind and etc...) well, that's definitely not some would just drop in and fix - it'd require a few days to grasp despite everything is well commented and structured.

You shouldn't fix every easy issue; try to leave some open so that new contributors have a place to start. Otherwise it'll be very hard for people to join your project!
