Probably the easiest way to get started is by helping to follow up to some of
the existing bugs in the Samba package. Browse through the bugs on

This might involve improving the package by sending patches to the
repository at git://git.debian.org/pkg-samba/samba.git, following up
to the reporter asking for more information, or linking to the bug report in the
upstream bug tracker (https://bugzilla.samba.org/).

Let me know if there's anything we can help with to get you started, e.g.
pointers to further documentation, etc.
