Good First Issue

“Good First Issue” is a label used by open-source maintainers on GitHub to categorize issues that are intended for people who have little to no experience in making open source contributions or are new to a particular project. It also signifies to maintainers that extra assistance is needed when reviewing a new contributor’s pull request, whether it’s introducing the contributing guidelines or providing in-line comments on lines of code that need revision. Additionally, there is a compiled list of repositories using the “Good First Issue” label in the topics section of GitHub.
