How to find the right bug

Shreya Bhandare
Hello,

i am very new to openssl and contributing to large code bases in general, I did my first contribution to openssl which got me familiar with the process etc. It is time for me to dig deeper and find a bug that actually helps me understand some part of code base and I'm having a hard time to actually find such a bug, any help in pointing out a bug that that any of you have come across, that you think would be a good start or something that you're not finding time to do, I would be happy to do it (with a little help). Or any help on pointers on how to find the right bug for you when you don't know much about the code base would also be very helpful, i wouldn't want to take up much time of anybody :)

Also i wans't sure which of the mailers was the more appropriate one to post this question so adding both, won't happen the next time!


Thanks,
Shreya

Have you looked through the open issues at https://github.com/openssl/openssl/issues? There are at least a few labeled "good first issue" (I'm not sure how many because I'm not enabling a bunch of scripts just to get github's filtering to work), and in any case there are plenty there to choose from.
