    1315If none of these tickets appeals to you, feel free to pick from the full list. And don't be afraid to ask on the mailing list if a particular ticket is a good candidate for the first tinkering with HelenOS. If you want to ask ''what is some nice ticket to start with?'', please, specify the area you are interested in. Is it memory management? Networking stack? USB keyboards? Drivers for ARM? Be concrete, please.

    1719When you found or created a ticket that you would like to work on, make sure it is not owned by someone else. If the ticket is available, feel free to assign it to yourself. Otherwise you may want to ping the ticket owner on our mailing list to see if he or she is really working on the ticket. It can happen that the owner will gladly agree to pass the ticket ownership onto you.
