I don't want to give the wrong impression - I'll still use the chosen tag, but if I'm to play the Umarell, I'd be most likely to use "bitesize"

Seriously, I don't want to get between work getting done, though.

However people feel about "gift", there is also the jargon factor.  For newcomers, jargon is a barrier and potential time waster

Can we use a word that is neutral and obvious?

Maybe "trivial-to-fix" or something like that?
