One project I have made minor contributions to is EasyBuild, a framework for managing the building and installation of (mainly) scientific software, which is hosted on GitHub: https://github.com/easybuilders/easybuild However, I can interact with it via Magit, and even if I don't use Emacs, the project has command-line tools which allow the creation of a pull request without the me having to know anything about GitHub or even git: https://easybuild.readthedocs.io/en/latest/Integration_with_GitHub.html#submitting-pull-requests-new-pr Obviously the EasyBuild people have put quite a lot of work into making this possible and it is mainly to allow people to contribute self-contained "recipes" for building particular pieces of software, rather than work on the main code of the framework. To be honest, last time I tried, responding to comments on pull-requests didn't work so well via Emacs, so unfortunately I ended up having to using the web-interface. But on the other hand, they also have a mailing list, so there is something for everyone ;-) Cheers, Loris >> This is a hobby project and it would be cool if it could be something >> else at least for someone! > > Why cool?
