Subject Re: identifying low-hanging fruit tasks for the community
Date Tue, 02 May 2017 20:01:14 GMT
I think that's a great idea.  The Contribute page [1] on
currently links to the 'contrib' label for "..possible easy contributions
that could get you started on your journey to become a Groovy committer."
 I used that link when I first started looking for ways to contribute.  I
think any label name is good as long as it's used consistently and some
efforts are made to provide pointers in the comments.


Just a few suggested tickets to add to the list
