New bug tags from UDS for helping small contributors easily find things they can work on

Hello list,

At a UDS community session we discussed the idea of creating bug tags 
designed to help small contributors find bugs that they can help with. 
A good example of this is the needs-artwork tag: once it's widely used, 
all a volunteer artist needs to do is find this link to scour Launchpad 
for anything that needs art: 
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bugs?field.tag=needs-artwork

I blogged about this here: http://yokozar.org/blog/archives/89

I've added the tags (and quick search links) to the Bug Tags page on the 
wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Tags

However, at the moment, very few bugs are actually using these tags.  It 
would be really great if we could get lots of community help in Karmic 
integrating extra contributions like this, so please help by tagging 
some bugs :)

Thanks,
Scott Ritchie
