It would be useful to have an ability for potential contributors to
search for entry-level bugs. That way, people who are interested to
contribute, but are not yet familiar with code base, may easily find how
to help.

I suggest allowing tagging bug reports as "easy" and/or "no code
needed". Then, a dedicated tab in woof overview page could show only the
easy bugs.

WDYT?

I've discussed with many FLOSS maintainers using the goodfirstissue
convention for naming issues in GitHub.  In general, this is not very
effective: these issues are generally seen as boring or trivial, and
get quickly fixed by experienced contributors, not beginners.

I would rather recommend writing a contributor guide for beginners so
that they learn how to tackle issues (easy or difficult ones) faster.
