How can you make a contribution count?
No contribution is too big or small. However, so the community derives maximum value, we request that you follow the below when reporting an issue:
- Focus on providing a clear description of the issue. Some key points to consider would be specifically describing what's missing, outdated, erroneous, or requires qualitative/technical improvement.
- Detail the specific impact the issue has on users.
- Delimit the scope of the issue. If the scope is larger, we'd request you to break it down to smaller tasks within an issue. For example, "Creating a Contribution Guide" is very wide in scope since there would be multiple tasks associated with the issue. However, "Fixing a grammatical error on the Quickstart page" is a more narrowly scoped issue that would require only a single pull request.
- Crosscheck existing issues to avoid duplicate work.
- Check for an existing pull request or issue. Check you reference the existing issue or pull request within the issue you're opening to give context for contributors who may want to work on it.
