>  exclude easyHacks in state NEEDINFO
I am working at combining the new "step by step" guide with the getInvolved page, so we only have 1 page but with the combined info.

NEEDINFO should really be excluded, and also if the bug is assigned to someone.

Is this already done ?

Could not agree more. However I can see a lot of work has been made the last couple of days, so I am unsure what is really outstanding.
