What this story does do for me is reinforce the notion that it's
critical for newbie developers to work "in the open", getting feedback
from the lists at an early stage about what they are doing.  If you go
off in a corner and develop a patch for a TODO item, you risk having it
rejected because you misunderstood what the TODO item was about.

I 100% agree with this. Newbie developers should be in the open and it kind of lends itself to my Mentors idea that I mentioned previously.

The problem I see is that even if they are in the open we make it fairly difficult to get the information they need to get started.

Maybe the connection is that while thinking about processes, we need
to take into account the need to encourage people to get early
feedback about what they are considering doing.
