Unfortunately we don't have much documentation to provide a nice learning curve. You can get help on IRC or the Mailinglist, and if you're so inclined, we'd really really love contributions in the area of How Tos and documentation.

That said, we have a couple of lists of possible tasks:

  • Project_Ideas contains projects that should be useful for GSoC-type timeframes, ie. 3 months or so. It also contains lists of project members that are interested in each project, so they volunteer to mentor newcomers (probably outside GSoC, too)
  • Infrastructure_Projects are mostly cleanup projects. That sounds boring, but some of them might be a good entry point to various subsystems of coreboot, since you're exposed to a whole lot of code, while working on a relatively constrained task.
  • Finally, we keep some TODOs on Trello. While this is mostly a personal collective notepad of a couple of developers, feel free to claim items there.

For all of them: We're a generally friendly community (though you might encounter a grumpy developer sometimes - we're just human, too), and like to help people who want to get started.
