Activity Update #3

Please see below for an overview of some recent community activity. If you're looking for something to get involved with, there are a few near-finished instant answers with no response from the developer (we've included some under the, "Rescue A Pull Request" section below).
Additionally, it's the time of the year where we nominate FOSS projects to donate to! If you're particularly passionate about a certain project, please nominate it in the thread here!

Any questions? Let us know!
