Derby currently has a field for "Newcomer" which is a term I think we 
snagged from another project, but I don't remember which one.   It is 
listed as a checkbox under Issue and fix info.  I think Newcomer combine 
non-tech and entry though.    I think that is ok as usually that aspect 
is clear as you drill down in the issue.  I think it is ok to combine 
the two.  For "mentor" I think it would be good to make it "mentor 
available" which is a bit longer but clarifies that it is not an issue 
looking for a mentor, but rather an issue  looking for a mentee.
