Subject Re: what label is used for issues that are good on ramps for new contributors?
Date Tue, 05 Aug 2014 14:18:51 GMT
We've just used 'noob', and in other cases marked the issue as 'trivial'.

If we really wanted to remove any perceived stigma away we'd called them
'starter' or 'intro' issue to remove negative connotation.  If others agree
we can chage this.

Jon.
