October is here, and so is Hacktoberfest!

Before contributing to awesome open source projects this month, Hacktoberfest team has some important updates to share with you.

After working closely with our friends at GitHub, we are happy to introduce measures that are brand new to Hacktoberfest 2020.

  1. Pull requests can be made in any participating GitHub-hosted repositories/projects.
  2. Maintainers can opt-in to participate by classifying their projects with the hacktoberfest topic.
  3. Your pull requests will count toward your participation if they are in a repository with the hacktoberfest topic and once they have been merged, approved by a maintainer or labelled as hacktoberfest-accepted.
  4. Additionally, any pull request with the hacktoberfest-accepted label, submitted to any public GitHub repository, with or without the hacktoberfest topic, will be considered valid for Hacktoberfest.

All valid pull requests prior to Oct 3 (when these rules were introduced) will be honored and counted toward completion of Hacktoberfest.
