I'm fine with entry-point. However, about its description:

I don't think we should include the initial part about "maintainer can
easily solve...", as it does seems a bit patronizing ("that's easy for
me, but I won't do it because..."). My take: just include the part about
being a good entry point (hence the name) for new contributors and scrap
the rest.
