Hi everyone, I had an idea in mind that I wanted to discuss with you, not sure if it's a good idea though.
I think we can add a new label to our JIRA that's like the
StarterBug label. That new label will declare that in order to solve that bug/task you won't need to build the compiler. For example, the first ticket I worked on was SR-12311 it was just a small wording adjustment to a diagnostic message. I also think that label can be used if the bug/ task is related to documentation changes and typos. I'm just not sure if there's any other use case for it and if it's worth it or not.
My main motive behind this is that building the compiler is not just intimidating for first time contributors but it also requires a huge disk space, a modern laptop, and a lot of time! I, myself, dealt with all of that but I remember that after my first PR got merged I was so happy that I decided to continue contributing and pushed myself to find a way around these previous setbacks.
