Yeah, I don't want to be limiting contributors to a specific milestone. 
I could see encouragement of those who become long term contributors to 
work more on the current milestone but what I think is more likely to 
happen is that more tickets that interest such contributors will start 
to go into the current milestone.

New contributors should certainly be free to look at all the work and, 
hopefully, we can help them to assess whether their choice of 
interesting ticket is likely to rely on some other piece of work being 
completed first.

With this list, I just want to see a sample of tickets, no particular 
order and I'll avoid the temptation to restrict priority. At least for 
now anyway.
