candidate might also be "NeedsPeceAndLove"); the idea is to track
orphan features that might be appealing to contributors seeking
opportunities and to give them at least some advantage in taking over.

What would be the rationale in this case? This doesn't seem very
convenient to me: tracking past work would save time and work to new
