Its been discussed many times before at LLVM Developer Meetings and recently on the mailing list about tagging bugs with the “beginner” keyword and that keyword was recently added to the LLVM Bugzilla. However, there are very few bugs(12) actually in Bugzilla with this keyword: https://bugs.llvm.org/buglist.cgi?keywords=beginner&list_id=125621

Many of these bugs have been touched/marked in the last 3 months, but
none of them has been picked yet.
I'm not sure what's the cause, and I don't belong to the marketing
department, but my feeling is that it's not enough marking bugs with a
beginner keyword to give them visibility. Probably a "contribute" page
on llvm.org or mentioning them on http://llvm.org/OpenProjects.html
(if they're not already, I was able to find only mentions to `code
cleanups`), would help.
