Is your list still the same, or have some tasks been completed?

I'd like to take on something, but those tasks are mostly outside of
my area of expertise.  On the other hand, I know how to build OI
packages and how to create PRs.  What do you suggest.

I know C and perl, but not Python.  My background is Solaris, mostly
command-line, not GUI.  I'm slow but steady.
