Hello, Rails! My first Rails contribution

Since I started learning and working with Rails, I’ve always had a goal to contribute. Whether it’s a feature, a bugfix or even a typo fix, contributing to Rails is a great way of giving back to the community. And on a personal note, I’ve always looked at it as a bit of a barometer to measure my understanding of the framework.

I recently came across something in Rails I wanted to fix, so I put up a PR and it was accepted. Now I’m on the contributors list! 🎉

The PR is tiny, but it’s an important milestone for me: I had enough knowledge and context to know where to look when our team encountered some funny behaviour around load paths, and I saw an opportunity for removing some surprising behaviour.

Here’s to more contributions in the future!
