How to use GitHub for Gutenberg?

The WordPress project uses GitHub to manage all issues related to the Core Editing experience including everything from, core blocks like image or paragraph, core editor APIs, full site editing, and more. Because this system is separate from Trac, the ticketing software that core WordPress uses, it can cause some confusion about when to engage here.

This video will teach you everything you need to know about creating, updating, and browsing GitHub issues so that you can effectively contribute to the core editor and follow along with the project using GitHub (This line is partially stolen from the how to use Trac workshop!).
