Hi Martin,

You can start by helping triage the issues reported to this mailing list (
docs at python.org). It gets a few reports a day on average, many of which
aren't real problems. It would really help for another set of eyes to test
the reports and verify whether they represent true problems or
misunderstandings. If this is the former, you can open an issue on the bug
tracker and submit a patch. If it's the latter, then you've already helped
both the submitter (by providing an answer quicker than others) and other
core devs (one less report to look at).

Good luck,
