Help wanted

I often read that a great way to get better at programming is to contribute to open-source projects. The problem is, open-source projects that are looking for help aren't all that easy to find. To help make this process a bit easier, we can use the GitHub API.

There's a lot we can do with this API—we could get pretty specific, looking only for issues in a particular langauge with a particular set of labels. To keep it simple, I'm just searching for open issues with the "help wanted" label. I'm also only returning the 100 most recent issues that match our criteria. We could return thousands (there are about 45,000 open issues on GitHub with the "help wanted" label for Python projects at the time of writing), but let's not get too carried away.

I've written a post describing the basic steps underlying this project here. At the moment, we're just searching for open issues in Python and R (because they're the two languages I'm most interested in); let me know if you want me to add anything else.
