Subject Re: what label is used for issues that are good on ramps for new contributors?
Date Tue, 05 Aug 2014 15:43:45 GMT
The labels "introductory" or "intro" seem the most straightforward to me.

Could a non-native English speaker comment on if either makes more sense
(or if something else would be better still)?
