If someone is a major contributor in a project, it's always funny to search back the VCS logs to see what was the first contribution. Usually a typo fix or a oneliner patch.
Partly related, cleanups are usually done by major contributors, so a cleanup is typically not e "first patch". Unless we are talking about me and gitmagic.
The funny story is that my first patch is really just about removing two parts of the book. Both were listed as "known git bugs", one was solved a long time ago, and I just fixed the other one a few days ago.
