First post here, and following up on this post from Catherine Devlin
earlier this year:

Catherine suggested a talk where some number of people experienced in
contributing to Python walks her through the process of contributing a
bugfix to Python. I think this would be a fantastic talk for PyTexas
2010 - if not for a beginner track, then perhaps for some intermediate
track. I myself would gladly be the 'guinea pig' of such a talk.

I just heard back from Catherine, and this talk is scheduled to go on
during PyOhio, but she suggests (and I agree) that more is better in
this area. There's a lot of work to be done, and a talk like this
could generate a number of contributors for the language.
