[one-dev] Introductory tasks for new OpenNebula hackers

I'm a small newcommer as OpenNebula user:
* 2 nodes at work
* 1 at home
and I'm completely incompetent as OpenNebula hacker and I want to
change that :-D
I saw a great idea from GNUnet:
“Provide a list of easy tasks for OpenNebula aspirant hacker”
This way, people can learn:
- the code itself and how it's articulated
- the process of having patches integrated (quality, documentation,
- how to interact with OpenNebula community
The OpenNebula community can see some low priority tasks done without
disturbing too much the core developers.
To bootstrap this process, I identified several things which could be
- Add a new redmine tracker to clearly identify tasks, they can be moved
to other trackers depending on needs (funding, becoming important
enough to wait volunteers, etc.)
- Communicate through mailing-lists and http://opennebula.org/community:contribute
- Identifying easy tasks and put them in corresponding tracker, maybe
adding some hints to help identifying where to start
Another point could be to describe how to setup a good development
environment and practices.
This could increase the quality of contributions if people can setup
some test bed and get through a “checklist before submit”.
What do you think about this?
 sure others are doing the same ;-)
