We were discussing in a Firefox community-involvement brainstorming session about how Bugzilla has the "good intro bug" on the status whiteboard for bugs that new developers can get started with easily, and that might be a good thing for Firefox to do...  then I went looking for it to find out specifically what it was, and discovered that it's not discoverable.  We really need to have a link to that buglist on the developers page (or perhaps in the contributors guide, but in the "How to help" section of the developers page would probably be a good spot.

  https://wiki.mozilla.org/Bugzilla:Developers

There is already a very large link that says "the list of bugs we've marked as being good for new developers".
