Very nice intro to contributing to open source! Would you be open to adding a sentence or two about the PR description like "The description is important to help maintainers review your changes. Include information about what problem you are solving and steps for the maintainers to test your changes." As a maintainer, the description is the most important part of a PR.

Hello Julien,

Thank you for your feedback. Being new to the open source sphere, I'm really glad to hear the perspectives of those who are more experienced with open source, like maintainers such as yourself. The addendum is no problem and I will be sure to include your suggestion in the updated version!
