Hello everyone,

A bit of a last minute heads up…
I'm at the advanced scientific programming in python summer school, and the
instructor of the git & github lesson was looking for a package for
students to do a small contribution (to see the workflow). As in 2016, I
suggested small documentation changes to Matplotlib: we have selected 15
examples that could be improved, either in the title, either merging two
examples that showcase similar, or just a better description.
This means you might see 15 pull requests appear on the Matplotlib
repository, by people who have experience in scientific Python, but no
experience in contributing to open-source software. The students are
pair-programming, so the authors of commits of each the pull request might
not reflect an actual developer. The changes should be minimal, and I
expect to be able to review and merge pull requests fairly quickly if the
CI passes. If not, help in reviewing and merging is appreciated (but don't
feel obliged to)!
