You should make sure you pick something you find interesting.  It can be 
a challenge to work on a long term project that isn't appealing to you 
personally in some way.

I think that Twisted is one of the better projects to work on if you're 
looking to improve your skills.  We have a well-structured development 
process which includes lots of feedback from other developers.  This 
sort of feedback is one of the best ways I know of to improve ones 
development skills.
