Best setup:

1) add a FIX_REQUIRES_ENTRY_LEVEL_KNOWLEDGE tag in the, to be 
affixed by owner of the bug only
2) create an entry-level-tasks at mailing list (free read i.e. archives, 
subscriber posts, eventually moderated). The subscription message should 
clearly state these present rules
3) make the engine automatically post bugs to the 
entry-level-tasks mailing list upon FIX_R_E_L_K affixing. The automatic 
message will contain a standard roster that will require posting patches to 
the bug report or contacting the owner of the bug preferably _after_ patch is 
4) advertise

This will hopefully provide a fix to Guillaume's observation (that I tend to 
subscribe to) that people walking around asking with what or where to start 
aren't actually ready/willing/able to contribute in the end (I dare to 
endorse this observation with the fact that I invented the jobs page at and I managed it for many months a few years ago).
