As a long time user of Linux, I've set the goal for myself of contributing to the Linux kernel by the end of the calendar year (2012). And I've been reading up on the subject, both the kernel internals as well as the details of the POSIX interface.
But now it's time to actually get started on it.
So I've created my own repo for kernel development, and am starting to pour over the bug reports for the kernel. I want to start off with fixing some of the easier bugs to get some experience with the code.
Any suggestions on what areas are good for getting started?
