The folks at OpenHatch recommend clearly identifying tickets as entry-level, and then,  rather
than always cleaning up the so-called "low-hanging fruit", leaving them for entry-level people.
Such an approach might be employed, say, 3-6 months out from GSoC, to start to identify good
student projects.

I see email on February 15th, from Ross and others [1], recommending just this, but it went
to comdev, and from there didn't appear to have propagated to the various dev or pmc lists.
That's the step we need to be sure to make happen so that we can catch the ear of the people
on each project who are anxious to see this happen.

Might be useful to identify which projects have representation on the comdev mailing list
and which don't.
