Add new exercises to Lisp Flavoured Erlang (LFE)
One of the easiest ways to add new exercises to the Lisp Flavoured Erlang (LFE) track is to translate them from other language tracks on Exercism. This page lists all of the exercises that exist on Exercism, but have not yet been implemented in Lisp Flavoured Erlang (LFE).

The language icons link to each existing implementation of the problem.
Once you've picked an exercise, follow the instructions in the Contributing Guide and submit your pull request to the Lisp Flavoured Erlang (LFE) track repository on GitHub.
