how-can-i-help will treat 'newcomer' tags exactly as it treats 'gift'
tags now. I'm only going to change retrieval logic from 'get all gift'
to 'get all (gift or newcomer)'. This change requires only a minor
addition to UDD generate-how-can-i-help script (and is already done -
just needs uploading). It doesn't require any changes in how-can-i-help
itself so we are freeze safe.

However, how-can-i-help contains some references to 'gift' bugs (both in
documentation and in configuration options) and those can't be changed
without modifying hcih itself. That means that the version available in
Jessie will refer to both 'gift' and 'newcomer' bugs as 'gift' bugs. In
the next hcih version, I'll change all those references from 'gift' to
'newcomer' and I'll add a note about 'gift'->'newcomer' tag change.
