Hacktoberfest YEG 2020

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward. Contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like, and ones they've just discovered. No contribution is too small -- bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

More information on the world wide event is available from DigitalOcean.
