Good first issue?

Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

Just a curiosity question regarding the little green tag on Github “:ok_hand: good first issue”.

How do some people get multiple tags like this? Is there a meaning other than what it says?

I think it usually means it’s a good/easy enough issue to fix for a contributor.

It’s meant to flag items that could bring new contributors into a github project for items they could fix easily.
