    For our release 0.3 project we were to make a pull request for a external project outside of our class's repos and one pull request for an internal repo. For my external PR I worked and still am working on a library project that my professor maintains outside of Seneca called Filer. Filer is a drop-in library that works like node's fs module but for browsers. The issue I was working on was making a migration of parcel 1 to parcel 2.
