A easy hack (or a "easy bug", or a "newcomer bug", depending on the project) is a pending task in the development of a collaborative Free/Open Source project that is considered to be well-suited for new contributors. It might indeed be a trivial bug to fix/task to accomplish, or it might be something less trivial but that is well adapted to learn how a specific part/process of the project works.

Software Heritage curates a list of easy hacks that are suitable for newcomers to the project. Any in the forge tagged with Easy hack will appear on the list.

  • if you are a newcomer to Software Heritage wondering how you can help, have a look at the list and see if anything there inspires you
  • if you are a contributor to Software Heritage already, keep an eye on tasks that are easy and/or suitable for newcomers and tag them with Easy hack as needed
