netikras1931120dI agree with @b2plane .
It takes a while to familiarize yourself with the project structure, code style, patterns used. When I was tuning a foss trading platform it took me a few days to start thinking like the project author[s] did to make sense of any of it. And only then did I manage to boost its performance by over 30%.
PublicByte66220dI hate good first issues. They've the opposite effect if you'd ask me.
* Bad issue gets good first issue while your first issue, which could be a critical bug, didn't even get a single reply
* Don't get a good first issue even tho you wrote an entire Wikipedia article about it with potential solutions and a temporary PR to fix it (Optional: You get no reply and your PR doesn't get merged).
* Giving everyone, even one line issues, the label good first issue.
Tell me these things aren't demotivating.
