Also welcome to devrant
Open Source is a really high trust area. There's surprisingly few walls up to prevent weird shit from happening, and that's good.

@jespersh I've heard that elsewhere, especially India, that participation in such events is highly encouraged / rewarded by educational institutions there. Also it's seen as a nice resume token...
Also when you have a youtuber saying "hey get a free tshirt with less than 5 min of work" folks are going to do it...
