Hi Limor,
Regarding your question about bugs:
The Linux kernel has a Bugzilla:
You can browse it by a subsystem.

Hi all,
 i am a senior c,c++ engineer which is used to complex MT systems both in
user space and in layer 4. i have read some books on the kernel, wondered
around kernel code and understood parts of it subsystems. i am really
enthutiastic about writing something within the kernel but i dont know
where to start. a good start for me would be list of bugs and small
features missing but i dont know where to find such updated list. i have
heard about the outreachy project and liked it but next cycle is only at
may, and even than i need to dedicate 3 full months without working and it
also seems like a students kind of program so i m not sure i will fit.
Is any has any idea how can i find list of bugs and small features to begin
with ?
I m great at understanding code and in sync mechanisms. i truly love the
rcu. i also love smp and cpu in general and  vm. i have an experience with
file systems , some experience with embeded and allot of background in
networks but  the kernel network internals is not a subsystem i have dived
into seriously yet ( even implemented tcp stack from scratch though for
some company i worked in. and it worked smoothly with great performance )
Any guidance will be appreciated.
