Issues are tracked in Bugziila. I use this query to produce the current list list:
The builds are done by this server:
The build site includes instructions for how to set up a development environment. These instructions are exactly what I use personally for that purpose. If you follow these instructions, and really want to be able to commit/contribute changes, be sure to choose the SSH (read-write, Gerrit) URI for the clone:
With your Eclipse.org account, you'll be able to commit changes to Gerrit for review:
Be sure your commit message starts with "[bugzilla-id]" so that the review/commit is automatically links to the Bugzilla.
Note that the vast majority of the open Bugzillas are enhancement requests, not actual bugs. I'm pretty much the only active maintainer of the code base. I'm very fussy about everything big and small, e.g., please try to respect the existing formatting and don't introduce gratuitous formatting changes by formatting files. As a result, the small/easy things are very quickly eliminated from the list, leaving only the more challenging problems.
Something like this would be relatively interesting:
But then you'd need to edit templates and those are kind of a night mare to edit so likely not the best initial task.
Perhaps have a look through the list of Bugzillas to see what looks interesting for your personally. The newer issues are near the bottom, so visit the the list in reverse direction...
