[Bf-committers] 'easy hacks' list

I was reading an article about the growth rate in developer
contributions to libreoffice compared to openoffice, and a signficant
amount of the growth was attributed to them having an 'easyhacks' list
of tasks, bugs, etc.

These range from

a) provide stack traces for bug reports that don't have stack traces
b) confirm whether a 'bug' reported by a static analysis (clang) is valid

to tasks that require more in depth knowledge of the source


basically it looks like they autogenerate these pages from the
bugtracker using a set of tags (easytask, interesting, the skill


perhaps we could do something similar?

There are also a ton of small feature requests that are worth doing
(ie see the wishlist for gsoc); but which core devs don't necessarily
have time for.
