It really depends what interests you. If you don't know the code base
very well, that would be a good place to start. Also don't discount
helping out on IRC or forums or documentation etc. Those are great ways
to help improve hibernate.
In terms of developing code, the best bet is to find some JIRA issues
that meet you level of experience with Hibernate source code and fix
those bugs. We can help identify potential JIRA issues, but like I said
it really is best if we understand your areas of interest or if you find
them based on those interests.
