|You can find Hacktoberfest FAQ here. Below you can find answers to some Jenkins-specific questions.|
This section provides answers to anyone who wants to participate in Hacktoberfest and to submit pull requests to the Jenkins project.
If you are new to Jenkins, you could start by fixing some small and well described issues in the featured projects. There are lists of such newbie-friendly issues, see the links in our featured project list. You can also submit your own issue and propose a fix.
This year Hacktoberfest does not set any special requirements for marking pull request. Any pull requests submitted between Oct 01 and Oct 31 will be counted towards the goal, unless they are marked as invalid by maintainers. Still, we ask contributors to mark their pull requests so that we can track Hacktoberfest statistics on the Jenkins side. There are three ways:
If you are not a member of the Jenkins organization, put "Hacktoberfest" in your pull request titles
If you are a member of the Jenkins organization on GitHub,
@jenkins-infra/hacktoberfest in your pull requests
If you have
Triage permissions in the repository,
just put the
hacktoberfest label on the pull requests
Yes, it is fine! Any contributions count, your role in a repository does not matter. Just make sure you create pull requests instead of direct pushes (hint: it’s a best practice anyway if you have a CI configured for your repository).
Jenkins project contains lots of materials about contributing to the project. Here are some links which may help:
Suggested project ideas also have their own documentation to help newcomers.
All featured projects are monitored by their maintainers, and you will likely get a review within a few days. Reviews in other repositories and plugins may take longer. In case of delays, ping us in the hacktoberfest channel in Gitter. Unmerged pull-requests also count in Hacktoberfest, so merge delays won’t block you from getting prizes.
See our Event Kit.

hacktoberfest label or "Hacktoberfest" in the title.
Some queries which can help to get insights:
Also, CD Foundation metrics can be used to get some insights.
