welcome in the Ubuntu community. Here are some questions that might
point you in a direction. Do you ran into bugs that you want to have
fixed? You can scratch your own itch by (trying to) fixing them. That
got me involved. Are you passionate about specific application? You
could look at those. Are these packages up-to-date?
