Free tip: if you're building an app that stores country information, I encourage you to use ISO 3166 https://www.iso.org/iso-3166-country-codes.html to store country mappings in your db... it also assists with localisation. Storing an ad hoc list of language-specific country names might seems like a good idea in the early days, but that expedient will come back to haunt you.
Context: I'm working with an API for an otherwise very useful app in which made just such a mistake. Wow, what a painful thing.

I submitted a documentation PR to an open source project yesterday.
Remember that documentation contributions are often more valuable than code. Also, you don't have to be an expert to contribute docs. If you got confused and then sorted it out, please share with a PR.
