Hacktoberfest 2021


I, like probably some of you, got a mail that Hacktoberfest 2021 is coming. Last year it was a bit of a mess because of a flood of bad actors (anecdotally I wasn’t affected), but the rules were changed and now it is opt-in. Due to this, last year there were hanrdly any (or none?) OCaml projects that would qualify.

As such, it would be nice if we could prepare something for this year for people to jump on some OCaml projects and help out. I feel like this could be a nice way to increase and promote our community.

What do you think? I’lm planning to add the projects that I maintain to the list and maybe I can motivate others to join and maybe help mentoring etc.

Edit: Here’s some resources for maintainers, organizers and companies.


I’ll try to add a few projects too.

Worth noting: not sure it is new from this year but GitLab repositories are accepted now also.
