Arlekin9543yDon't be shy. To be honest it's not like anyone will notice or give a damn about some repository - not until it is something they need at least.
You could make some issues with "first-pr" tags ti encourage ppl to contribute, therefore giving beginners chance to start contributing to OSS, and you chance to work with ppl.
But in general you have full control
Ronald2773yThe very first thing I do is create a repo with a readme. If somr wants to give me shit for code that isnt in master, they can suck it. Once my code is in master then im proclaiming to the world "i am OK with this".
The amazing thing about open source is that even if you publish imperfect code, people will help you.
I know it can feel a bit like taking off your clothes in front of a new date. But just like bodies, no one's code is perfect, and by sharing and communicating you can learn to use it better ;)
I really suck at bash scripts and nodejs... Those projects always end up messy and unstructured. And I have never received any hate for publicizing it. Just helpful PRs!
