Hi all,

Last year I was proposing to push Hacktoberfest a bit and to invite new
contributors using it.  Unfortunately I did that too late, so it landed
flat. The new Hacktoberfest starts, so I propose to try again:
https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/. I should have created it before
the previous governance meeting, but better late than never.

What exactly do I propose?

   - Add "hacktoberfest" labels to the key components
      - Jenkins core, jenkins.io
      - Plugins with many installations (I am ready to add Role Strategy
      from my hall of shame)
      - It's already in Remoting since the previous year (it is soooo
      newbie-friendly, yes)
      - Review "newbie-friendly labels", add more tickets to that
   - Create a blog-post announcing Hacktoberfest on jenkins.io and
   providing guidelines
      - Mark Waite has already contributed some guidelines and call for
      contributions blog
      - We could reference the existing content
      - Suggest @code-reviewers as a review source
      - Maybe: Send stickers to new contributors who get more than 5 pull
   requests merged into the Jenkins project?

Such approach costs us almost nothing, but OTOH we could get more
contributors and to encourage the existing ones. And I am happy to drive
this activity.

WDYT? If there is no votes against, I will go forward an prepare a
blog-post (ETA: Wednesday).

BR, Oleg
