All pointers about suitable bugs and how to tackle them are gratefully
Here are some suggestions:

These are straightforward bugs inside individual Codan checkers that cause false-positive or false-negative warnings or errors. Fixing them should give you an idea of how checkers work, and some exposure to the data structures (AST and bindings) that represent the code they operate on.

This has to do with how information is communicated from the checker which identifies a problem, to the "quick fix processor" which offers the user a fix to the problem. This should give you exposure to the higher-level architecture of Codan. The problem and proposed solution are already described in the bug comments.

If any of these catches your interest, and you'd like some more tips about it, please let me know here or in a bug comment, I'm always happy to help.
