> One of the issues CXF is having is how to get more people involved in the code to help
attract new developers.   One thought we had was to be able to have the "experts" triage the
JIRA entries into difficulty levels so newer folks could get their feet wet with "easier"
tasks/bugs.   To support this, we'd like to have a "Difficulty" attribute with either a 1-5
scale (with 0 for unknown) or even a list like {"Unknown", "Trivial", "Easy", "Medium", "Hard",
"Experts Only"}.    We could then use the Jira plugin in confluence to keep up-to-date lists
of stuff on our wiki to help new folks get started quicker.
> Anyway, we've had a couple requests from people for things to help them get started in
the code.   Something like this could help them find things that they could work on where
they could really feel they are contributing while they are learning.
