New developers looking to contribute

Hi flask community,

My friend Zack (cc'ed) and I are seniors at Cal Poly Pomona studying
computer science. In our current class we have a term assignment to go out
and find an open source project and submit two patches. We wanted to
contribute to flask because it's awesome. I love that it's so easy to get a
prototype of something up and running.

We were wondering if anyone was willing to give us a few nudges in the
right direction as to which issues would be good ones to work on? They
don't have to be easy (in fact we get more points if they're not), but it
would be great if someone could help us get set up and started on some
issues that could be completed and submitted in a few weeks.

I hope that from this school assignment I can become a regular contributor
to the flask community.

Thanks!
Satshabad Khalsa

As William already mentioned, there's a list of issues that are waiting to
be closed. Does your patch need to be merged as part of the assignment? 
Because contributions tend to get reviewed carefully but slowly by Armin.

Regarding points vs ease, it would probably be useful to sort the issues 
by age. The oldest issues are probably the most difficult ones then.

I also would check out the issue page of Werkzeug 
(https://github.com/mitsuhiko/werkzeug), one of the libraries Flask's 
using. I personally find the open issues there to be more interesting and 
less specific to the usecase of the reporting person.
