In the upcoming core dev sprint, I plan to work on improving the experience of contributing. A couple of the ideas I have would entail writing one or two new bots or periodic tasks.
I’ll write about the specific ideas elsewhere soon, and of course will discuss these here before actually implementing them.
But I thought to ask, is there anything I should set up in advance in order to be able to experient quickly with something like this? Ask GitHub for a token with higher rate limits, perhaps? Get access to a Heroku account for testing which I won’t have to pay or if pocket for? Etc.
