The specific project I was thinking about seems to be lacking in the
needed mix of mentors at the moment.

We do have a listing of "easy" and "simple" hacks from our development
orientation page:

http://openoffice.apache.org/orientation/intro-development.html

Feel free to take a look at these, and get involved by fixing some of
these issues if you like. We have quite a number of Ubuntu builders who
can answer questions on this list. Good luck with your open source project.
