My first legitimate pull request was (finally) accepted, it is right over here.
For people who are not familiar with the term, a pull request is essentially a request for your contribution to be accepted into someone else's code base.
I used the word "legitimate" as I have actually submitted (and all of them were accepted ) several other pull requests, none of them touched the actual code. Their effects range from fixing typo to bumping up the version of a dependency to requesting my plugin to be included to the official site.
It took exactly a week for my pull request to be accepted, not because the owners are lazy, but the exact opposite. @parkr, who helps maintaining the Jekyll project helped improve my contribution from lousy to suck less to much better. As a result, I can say that at least 50% of this contribution is his!
Nonetheless, I am proud to say that I am finally contributing to an open source project. At least a few lines of code written by me will be executed whenever someone run
jekyll build, and this is awesome.
