[Sugar-devel] first-time only issues

You're saying leave some flaws rather than fix them.

In general that's a good idea for attracting new members to a
community, but it takes investment in preparing the issue, and if that
investment is greater than fixing the flaw there's not much benefit.

Also, when I do create issues, some experts use it as an opportunity
to post off-topic criticism, and some beginners don't apply any
diligence before asking questions.  The issues sit there with the
criticism or questions and answers, and nothing else gets done.  We
have plenty of them.

What we really need is a well-functioning community of people with a
common goal who will listen to each other.  Create that first, then
the beginner issues can be created.
