7 As you probably know, the Ubuntu team has started the project [["One Hundred Paper Cuts">>https://launchpad.net/hundredpapercuts]].
8 They [[define>>https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PaperCut]] a paper cut as:
9
10 * a bug, or an unintended problem occurring within an existing piece of software,
11 * the presence of which makes a computer more difficult or less pleasant to use,
12 * that is easy to fix,
13 * that the average user would encounter during his/her first day of using
14
15 XWiki is a great software but it contains also a lot of "paper cuts". Such little but annoying bugs or usability issues would be a great entry point for new XWiki developers, because they are easy to fix. But also experienced XWiki committers could relax fixing these paper cuts after their hard work. ;)

19 So far we have identified some easy-to-fix bugs and marked them as easy in JIRA. We could decide that the trivial category we have corresponds to paper cuts:

21 * https://jira.xwiki.org/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?mode=hide&requestId=10534

27 Here's some work to be done:

29 * Review existing issues and verify the difficulty is correctly set
30 * Add these custom fields to all projects in JIRA
31 * Prepare a page on dev.xwiki.org to explain this Paper Cut thing
32 * Promote it on the XWiki mailing lists, twitter, etc
