Hi Iven,

Sorry for the delay: PyCon U.S. happened.

I am bad at giving people suggestions for what to work on :-(
Moreover, nowadays it's a bit like asking "I want to do something in
Python, what do you suggest?".  What area of PyPy are you more
precisely interested in?  The Python interpreter (e.g. the object
model); or the port to Python 3; or compatibility with external
generators like Cython or SWIG; or tweaks to the JIT's optimizer or
the JIT's backend; or to the GC; or supporting Continulets in the JIT;
or contributing to the GCC plugin to replace the shadowstack; etc
etc... (sorry if I miss important topics).

A bientôt,
