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.
We (OE) have wiki page (slightly outdated) with some janitor tasks:

Great, this is the idea. It's a pretty sparse list, and could do with some fleshing out.
