Looked at both Open changesets by newbie owner and Biterg's C_Gerrit_Demo, few noticings:
- Last bot edit was made to the Open Changesets page on January 25th. I am not sure how the script works, but pulling some random names from the list and looking them up on Gerrit (https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/255083/) shows that the patch uploaded was from a newcomer quite a while ago, and same for other users. Also, the list contains usernames whose patches were taken care (merged) by other users quite a while ago. In short, we would need to optimize this script to meet our needs.
- Now from Biterg's C_Gerrit_Demo, new developers who contributed between now and January 1st of this year are in here: https://wikimedia.biterg.io/goto/6f59239b39012514fe4b3a73a5551e12. These usernames are missing on the Open changesets page.
