Here are the 10 projects I am contributing to over the next 6 months. Share yours

My contributions to open source projects have gone down in the last nine months or so and I do not like it. Thankfully, it is one of those things in my control, so I am changing that.

Here are the 10 projects I picked to contribute to over the next 6 months. Which projects are you contributing to?

Update: One thing we are all allowed to do is change our minds or realize we have overcommitted ourselves. As such I am reducing the number of projects I intend to contribute to.


I also have five of my own projects which you are welcome to contribute to!

Thanks for sharing, @thomasbnt - I am always inspired by the work of the l10n and i18n communities. I have joined the Astro Discord and the community is absolutely amazing. This was one of the primary reasons I wanted to give back.

Thanks for sharing. For me it was my main open source project Bolt, then other stuff related to graph databases like php-client or cypherGUI. Recently it was thingsdb.js and thingsdb-php.
