I consider myself pretty community-oriented, but, if I'm trying some new platform, and the recommended practice when I am confused by the documentation is to go file documentation bug reports, then I'm unlikely to follow that advice. I know that posting a bug report is an interruption to any

One other relatively easy project would be to add sha256 to the openssl library. https://docs.racket-lang.org/openssl/index.html There is a version of sha256 implemented in https://github.com/RayRacine/grommet but it's for Typed Racket only. I know that it's possible to use TR from untyped code,

When you're first learning Racket, wanting to contribute to the community is very admirable, but I think your *first* priority should be to get experience with Racket.  I think this prioritization will tend to make you more useful to everyone, sooner. I suggest getting experience with Racket

Thank you all so much for your comments (the resulting discussion was also entertaining and unexpected). If I were to implement path auto-completion, would it be useful if it wasn’t integrated into DrRacket? I am not precisely sure what I would be adding this functionality to if not DrRacket. On

+1. The specific use case for me is super-scripty things like this: (csv->list “~/clements/datasets/poly-dashboards/2178-data-schedule.csv’) … to load a file from disk. One could make the claim that I should choose paths and filenames that I always remember, but in fact, shell-based completion

I think there's value to having a general projects list, beyond the office hours one. The older list was an attempt of that, which failed at that purpose by becoming more of a "brain dump" area, and falling into disrepair. I think that for such a list to succeed, it would need to be actively
