Way to go Hanno!
Here some links to resources that should help you in this:

Its usually better to focus on few packages which you know well (perhaps 
because you are using them yourself, or you worked on them in the past).
Beside browsing for bugs on these packages, you can also set yourself as a bug 
contact for them and you will be automatically notified by bugmail whenever a 
new bug report is entered in Launchpad.
Another possibility is to check the latest entered bug reports, but I would 
suggest to limit yourself to packages which are in Universe since it might be 
easier to find a sponsor.
Last but not least, we will enter into the Intrepid development soon, so there 
will be a need for syncs/merges and most probably some SRUs and backports, 
see under MOTU Processes and under How to Help.
