A new usertag was introduced into the BTS a while ago, the
gift tag. [0] [1] Being a newbie in Debian, the BTS and
contributing to the free software community I thought this
was a great idea. It seems that the gift tag isn't used that
much though [2]. It would be great if the gift tag gained

There exists pages on w.d.o that targets how to get started
with help out. [3] [4] Perhaps there is a need for a more
clean path to finding out how to get started, a start would be
to put links on the frontpage of w.d.o and [5] to get directly
to the help guide [4]. As it is now, the path there is quite
long and IMHO you need to know what you are looking for.
