The documentation. In the last 2 days I read about half a dozen mails
about how bad the linuxbios documentation is. Looking at the code for
some years now, many "old" contributors became "code blind", ie. used to
the weird things. 

For me it's easy to answer to an explicit question, but if you'd ask
"explain linuxbios" I might just answer questions that you would have
never asked and the other way around.

So not being "code blind" is very valuable for the project. Still seeing
the problems that someone coming freshly to the code has is a great
chance to really improve things for upcoming generations of linuxbios
