A good place to start is the security tracker's TODO list [0].  Of
particular interest would be triaging and closing out the remaining
issues from 2008 and 2009.

Also, it would be useful to try to start adopting some of the additional
features applied in Ubuntu [1] but not in Debian.  The hardest part
there is going to be convincing the gcc maintainers to deviate from
upstream defaults.

Best wishes,
