Yep, my plan is to export our bugs to open hatch and anywhere else who advertise bugs to be fixed.

bite-sized is not a bad idea either.  I'm leaving it up to Carlos on what it should be called as he's the one who has been trying to build the community.

I don't think we want to think too hard about the bugzilla tag.  It's an implementation detail that is primarily the concern of the bug squad and the newcomer.  Most people are not going to be paying that much attention to it.  As long as we all agree what it means, we're probably fine.  We're changing gnome-love because it is overly tribal knowledge on what it means and so what we want to present outside of GNOME is something easy to understand.  'newcomer' would make sense to bugs being advertised on openhatch for instance.

Great point, though, much appreciated.
