Student Working on School Project, Hoping to Contribute

Hello, I am a senior in college and am working on a project where I need to report on my experience contributing to an open-source project. This project interests me, and I was hoping to spend the next couple of weeks working on fixing a few bugs. I have read the developer guide and understand the level of QA required to get my bug fixes accepted. Who can I contact to discuss requirements, as well as make sure I am not working on a bug fix someone else is working on? Thank you, my email is

Hi @asaacke
Look at an issue, if you see PRs referencing the issue, then there's likely someone working on it.
If there isn't any PR references, then you can try working on a PR, which you can submit along with a description referencing the issue.
