👉 How I participated as a Maintainer and what was my end goal behind maintaining "ComEve"?
Maintainers are the keystone of open source. This year’s Hacktoberfest has a new, added focus: empowering open source maintainers.
Last year when I joined hacktoberfest, I was struggling to find the valid project and a maintainer, who can support me to getting started with hacktoberfest and guide me the things towards opensource, so that I can contribute and open my first pull request. So, my vision for maintaining a Community Events Platform Project by this Hacktoberfest is to support and guide new joiners who are willing to contribute, I opened everything in terms of issues and created basic issues and middle level issues, so that every level of joiner can contribute, sometimes I hookup the calls with joiners, I did the guidance calls with contributors from India and South Africa to give them a overall walk through.
