This was something I thought of doing a long time ago but forgot about
it until just now. :P

I just registered a new user 'patchnewbie', and am going through and
assigning that user to any issues that are very simple and would make
great first patches for someone new to core development. See:


If you find issues like this (typos, < 10 liners, etc.), please ping me
on IRC (webchick) so I can get them added. I can also fork out
patchnewbie's password to you if you're interested in specifically
searching for easy issues as well. Let me know!

And please purposely *don't* supply patches for these issues if you
already know what you're doing -- let's save them for the core hackers
of tomorrow! :)
