All right, all right, I'm sorry I brought this up. What I really meant was
that there could be a list of so-called low-hanging fruit which neophytes can
start with just to get familiar and comfortable with the tree. No condescending
intended at all. Or maybe some documentation tasks that still lie open.
I realise that work is just work. But a plea like this cannot be ignored. If
someone with little experience wants to contribute, why should we not let
them? Showing people where the low hanging fruit lies will help I think. If
they think they can tackle stuff that's more advanced, I think they will just
do exactly that and submit patches.
What if everything is an illusion and nothing exists? In that case, I
definitely overpaid for my carpet.
