I asked that exact question of Jordan myself.  His help was fantastic.

That sound like a great idea.  I've fixed two bugs myself, but havn't
really know what to do with them.  I've ended up uploading the debdiff
to malone and changing the assignment to the motureviewers as asked.  It
would be great to have a clear path set out somewhere.

Is there anyway bugs could also be categorised by suspected language so
that people with specific knowledge in these areas could quickly locate
bugs they could help with.  Being a n00b myself, I find it hard to
lcoate bugs I can actually work on at the moment.

I think tbh Jordan is on to a winner there.  It may also be possible
that some people who are perhaps good with people but less good with bug
fixing might be better at organising resources

Another $0.02 from a n00b
