I'm pretty sure there are several apps that could use some attention. A lot of 
development on KDE (Kubuntu's desktop) is aimed towards the big upcoming 4.0 
release. You might want to give a hand there - it's exiting and fun work. You 
can find information on techbase.kde.org or in the articles that come with 
the first alpha (coming soon, alpha 1 will be released in a few days, and an 
article from Troy and me about how to get it and what's fun in there will be 
posted soon after that).

Another option is to focus on Kubuntu-specific stuff, though there isn't that 
much for a C++ developer like you. Maybe, if you like python, you can help on 
Guidance, the config tools in Kubuntu. And fixing bugs in upstream apps is 
always appreciated.

Anyway, if you want to use your C/C++ skills, I recommend joining the KDE 4 
developing frenzy. If you're more into polishing, packaging and documenting 
applications, there is work enough on Kubuntu.

Very, VERY appreciated!
