Looking to contribute via bug fixing

Hello everyone

I use CMake everyday and would like to learn it better by fixing some bugs. However, after an (albeit brief) look around I didn’t see any guidelines on how to start doing this. I can peruse the bug list on gitlab of course, and I have looked at the mechanics of contributing in the CONTRIBUTING.rst document. But I did not see anything on the “right” way to select something to work on. I know some open-source projects have a label such as “good first issue” that helps. Is there something similar for cmake?

Failing that, can someone offer guidance as to how, for example, to select bugs to start cutting my teeth on?

Thanks in advance,

Matt
