This is a page about improving or modifying OpenHatch.

We call that "Hacking OpenHatch," and there is a whole category of pages about that.


If you download the OpenHatch code, you'll notice all of our code is in a directory called mysite. Did you ever wonder why?

It's simple: it's one of the first things thing we ever made using Django. One day in 2009, I read the official Django documentation and followed the tutorial. The first tutorial page suggests you run this command:

$ django-admin.py startproject mysite

So that's what I did. Then we kept committing code to it, and we ended up with a website.

In fact, until October 2010, the git repository was called "milestone-a". That's because this was just the first milestone. We knew we'd probably throw away the code in this repository and start fresh again with a different repository.
