I do personally close anywhere from 5 to 20 tickets per month depending
on month and ticket work sizes, so perhaps 15 is a safe number for 6
months of work plus some rampup time.. But please don't specify a
static snapshot of the current top 15 tickets, as priorities will change
between now and next year. 

Also note, setting the bar low miscommunicates our development needs to
the contractor/new hire. Ideally, we want them to do more than just
close 15 tickets and collect their invoice and call it quits.. That's
why I'd much prefer the language I suggested in my other reply.
