HEADS UP: Keeping the "Newcomers" wiki page alive

Thanks for doing this Jan. I think a ticket category works a lot
better than just a page alone.

Simon and I talked about this once, and another good point is that by
having a category, it's a lot easier for regular, more experienced
developers to sweep the 'newcomers' list and fix anything that needs
it, perhaps for a pending release that may be soon.

But these days we seem to have a somewhat healthy influx of developers
and patches, so maybe these tickets can just get fixed the natural
way. :)
