I wish you luck in your endeavour!

Here are some links which might prove useful to you:

 * https://jira.hpdd.intel.com - New issues are opened here

 * http://review.whamcloud.com - New patches are reviewed here

 * https://wiki.hpdd.intel.com/display/PUB/Submitting+Changes - Some
   info on the development cycle used by the Lustre project.

Unfortunately, there isn't nearly enough documentation as there should
be in the Lustre tree (especially for new comers), so feel free to ask

As far as potential projects, in my opinion, the project list you
linked to is a bit dated. There are *many* open issues which need to be
fixed, so I would suggest finding something that interests you on the
JIRA bug tracker that I linked to above, since that is a more up to date
source of information.

If you are completely new, a good place to start is just downloading the
git tree, building, and running the unit tests locally to get familiar
with the project. Then you can start to modify the source and explore
some of the areas that interest you.

Cheers, Prakash
