It's much easier to become an Author on a given Project (two sponsored 
contributions [0], maybe a month of work), than a Member of any Group 
[1] (regular activity for a year). So I don't think that would be very 
useful in practice.

In addition, Project specific tasks like triage require expertise in the 
specific Project. For example, I would not consider myself particularly 
well equipped to pick out the low hanging fruit for, say, the Aarch64 
Port, as that's not something I work on.

So rather than going through JBS to find things for someone to do, I 
think it would be more useful to find out which Projects already have 
such tasks, and then to collect a set of links on our wiki to them.

That way, we'd direct people wanting to do something to Projects that 
have something specific for them to do, rather than hoping that our pick 
of a low hanging fruit at a given time aligns with a specific Project's 
schedule, reviewer interest, availability and priorities at the later 
time when a developer actually shows up.

That's something individual Projects are better equipped to judge than 
the Adoption Group.
