Will your contribution be merged? Here's how to tell

The pull request workflow is great, because it allows proposing changes to the codebase in a way where they can be evaluated, reviewed (with feedback) and eventually merged or rejected. Despite this, a large amount of pull requests get rejected for reasons that are often unclear to new contributors, so this article aims at clarifying the process and underlying motives for PR reviewers' decisions.
