My feelings as well. During beta, there was clearly work for those with
experience in the areas with open items, and probably for committers
generally, but each time I reviewed the open items list I found little I could
do to help. If there's something I should have found, I'd love for someone to
point it out; in the meantime I tested betas and release candidates in
situtations common to my use of PostgreSQL, and found that it worked to my
satisfaction, after which I was left trying to figure out what to do, and
started dabbling in a patch or two that interested me.
