So it kind of depends what your areas of interest and expertise lie.
Usually, people have an itch to scratch, or a particular problem to
solve and they start discussing how they could address it. For
instance, some people would like to build images for a new board, or
would like to build binaries for different optimizations, or an
incompatible ABI, or would like to add a new feature to the toolchain
Perhaps you can check how we currently do things and see where it
doesn't meet your expectations, then start attacking this problem?
There are some ongoing projects for this cycle where additional hands
could be useful, but these are not fully specified yet; e.g. we know
some software fails to build with recent ARM toolchain configurations,
or that some software doesn't cross-build, but it's not easy to point
you at lists of such bugs right now.
Hope this helps,
