There are two really quite separate issues here:
1) Patches, even trivial ones can sit unreviewed for long periods of
time leading to a negative first time contribution experience.
2) Arguably, Phabricator provides a confusing interface for first-time
or irregular users. There are efforts to improve this

As for 1), this is something a few of us discussed at the LLVM
Cauldron in Hebden Bridge last week which inspired me to give a
lightning talk. Slides:
Video: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32fmbEI9WrM> I'm intending to
start an RFC thread when I get a chance. The tl;dr is I propose
stealing Rust's highfive-bot and forming a team of eager volunteers
who want to help improve response times for patches from first-time
