Personally speaking, I would very much like to move beyond my usual
grammar checking and coding suggestions.  If people know of simpler
tasks that are rather independent of other people's work, things I can
do to start moving up the next few steps, emailing me privately or on
this list would be appreciated.  I plan on spending more time looking at
the JIRA's myself next week.

(BTW, I will out of town Friday thru Monday, not returning until Tuesday
morning Wash DC time, so after tomorrow will not be able to respond to
anything until then.)

Well, it might not look good for a user to be submitting a patch, and
for us to declare it "difficult" or "complex" or whatever.  I don't see
this as that important anyway.  As contributors start looking around
JIRA, and also study more, they can start to figure out more of where
they can be of help.

Also, frequently, it is not just "easy" or "hard"--it is also
"interesting" or "applicable to what I want to focus on", etc.
