October is hacktoberfest (https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/) In the month of October, people can sign up and contribute to open source projects on GitHub. If they make 4 PRs during Hacktoberfest, they'll earn a limited edition T-Shirt.
This may sound grumpy to some, but I'm against gamification of open source and also against giving GitHub a special role.
I don't like gamification, but the t-shirt thing sounds innocuous enough. I would be more worried if such a scheme became permanent. Also I'm not even sure we can prevent this one for CPython PRs:
"""To get a shirt, you must make four pull requests between October 1–31 in any timezone. Pull requests can be to *any public repo on GitHub, not just the ones we’ve highlighted*.""" (emphasis added)
