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.
