Hi Christoph,

thanks for your ideas to improve the EasyHacks system. Below you find 
some additional thoughts.

Additionally to the whiteboard tags, adding standard comments to the 
respective bug entry might make sense and would help to avoid 
misunderstandings. The standard comments could be something like:

In case of a easy hack proposed by a user:
"This is a proposed easy hack entered by a user of the LibreOffice 
community. So far, the enhancement request is neither verified nor 
approved by a LibreOffice developer in terms of easiness of its 
implementation. If you like the idea of this proposed easy hack, please 
go ahead and contact ....(UX and DEV list?)....before you start coding"

In case the easy hack was entered by a developer:
"This is an approved easy hack. The developer team has found this bug or 
enhancement request as an easy entry step to start coding with 
LibreOffice. You are welcome to take this bug and start coding. Please 
contact (.....)"

What do you think about this idea?

Kind regards
