Here is a proposal:

    The maintainer can easily solve this bug by himself, but he
    wants to take it to new contributors who wish to get involved
    in Debian. Bugs of any difficulty can be offered in order to
    attract and increase skill.

    The maintainer is committed to providing assistance to new
    contributors. This gateway is a complement more accessible to

    The maintainer is requesting help with dealing with this bug.
    Either he does not have the skills and wishes collaboration,
    or is overloaded and wants to delegate to someone who will
    treat alone. For newcomers see entry-point.
