RFC: newbies and janitors

Darren Hart <dvhart@...>

The Yocto Project is a complex thing, and people eager to get involved can have a difficult time sorting out where to start. The Linux kernel community put together kernelnewbies and kerneljanitors to help people get up to speed and provide them with manageable tasks to get them started.

I think we have (or should have) the "newbies" side of things covered with #yocto #poky and the website and the various manuals and documentation projects, but I think something like "janitors" would be valuable. This could be something as simple as a tag for bugzilla bugs appropriate for newcomers go after.

I imagine this is something we could share with OE - or perhaps OE already has something that serves this purpose - or could be extended to do so.
