I'd probably suggest lurking and waiting for things to come in. 
Mostly because I don't have any particular list, and they take a while
to generate.  Last time you asked at a pretty good time, as there had
been a number of good starting tasks that were just building up, but
now you've cleaned them (and a few more advanced ones) out already.

Sorry for being so lame at patch review.  I'm having a much harder
time catching up than I expected...

I think you've actually gained a good amount of familiarity with the
code already with the many patches you've contributed, so I really
don't have much to add for pointers for these, other than that is a good place to
look for keybinding bugs (and maybe check that our copy-and-pasted
code from libegg for handling special keysyms and such is up to
date--it probably isn't), and bug 102547 is supposed to be a good one
about theme bugs but I also have a little list somewhere else showing
bug 97703, bug 315910, bug 317382, and bug 321474 which you might find

Thanks for all the help!
