DigitalOcean is sponsoring Hacktoberfest again this year. For those unfamiliar, it is a global event which incentivizes contributions to open source projects during October.
The software and infrastructure running Lobste.rs open source, and we have several open issues which would be perfect for new contributors. If anyone wants to participate in the event and would like to contribute to Lobste.rs; feel free to ask either me (c35e3b) or pushcx in our community channel for assistance.
In addition to the prize put up by DigitalOcean for contributing, we can also offer you a Lobste.rs cloak on Freenode.
