As per my understanding, for a project to participate in Hacktoberfest meant
that a few issues need to be marked with the "hacktoberfest" label.

Similar to what has been in the Uyuni project:

This is the only issue I could find when I searched for "hacktoberfest" label
for any SUSE project.

This is also explained in the FAQ page of the event:

As a maintainer, how do I encourage contributions to my repos?

Create issues for anything you’d like contributors to help with, making sure
to give them a Hacktoberfest label so they’re easier to discover.

You can also share issues or repositories on Twitter, using #Hacktoberfest.
We’ll try to retweet as many as we can for contributors to see


Hi guys,

We have raised this topic in our retrospective meeting yesterday. We consider very interesting and positive this kind of initiatives to push people to collaborate in open source projects. But, regarding the YaST team, we are not so sure of having the required time for properly mentoring and guiding at this moment. Note that starting at YaST project could be not straightforward, and it requires some help in most cases.

Anyway, we have kept the door open to create some issues for the Hacktoberfest. We will inform you in case we finally find something interesting to propose.
