You can either go throught the bug log and find those where an "easy"
patch would be needed.

Or review the existing patches that haven't been reviewed...

Or try reproducing bugs....

In general, the overall need is for a general bug triage. Maybe focus
on bugs that require investigating the code as you have the needed
skills to understand it..:-)
