It’s quite common for newcomers to the community to make a post asking about potential issues they could work on. Julia itself uses the intro issue label (which is appropriately featured in up-for-grabs.net), but there’s no such standard for the packages.
What do package authors think about adopting a “intro issue” label? With a unified label across the Julia ecosystem, such issues would be easily searchable with queries like this.
If there’s support for this idea, I’ll make a PR adding this recommendation to the package development documentation, and maybe start prodding some of the most popular packages to start using it.
