As an alternative to HHH-3856, I can recommend to start with some  
Annotations or
EntityManager bugs. Annotation bugs might give you an easier 'entry point'  
the whole code base.

Take for example  
For this issue there seems to be a patch which according to some comments  
needs still
some modifications. You could try to supply a patch which works against  
the current trunk
and which includes unit tests. This way you have something to start with  
and get familiar
with the code and the build. ANN-784 could be another good issue to start  
with. Again a patch
and test(s) would be needed.

I guess what I am trying to say is to start with a few bugs which have  
already a good
description and expand your knowledge by exploring the code from there. I  
am sure Hibernate Core has
similar bugs which you could start with.
