Onboarding

We accept community contributed packages via our onboarding system - a software review system, sorta like scholarly paper review, but way better. We’ll highlight new packages here that have come through this system. A huge thanks to our reviewers, who do a lot of work reviewing (see the blog post on our review system), and the authors of the packages!

If you want to be a reviewer we have a new form you can fill out, and we’ll ping you when there’s a submission that fits in your area of expertise.

The following five packages were recently submitted to our onboarding process:

The following package recently went through our onboarding process and has been approved:



On the blog

Our community manager got a blog post up the other day about the event: Bringing Together People and Projects at Unconf17

We’ll have more posts in this series coming out soon - keep an eye out.
