One of the smoothest paths to improving Debian and becoming a
contributing maintainer is to choose a Debian package that you use
yourself, and begin fixing some of its bugs in the bug tracking system

This will be of direct benefit and, since you will be working with the
existing maintainers, will also start to teach you about how Debian
packages are maintained collaboratively.
