Yeah, Bugzilla is our task list. :)

Since you mentioned docs...

There's some links near the bottom of the Documentors guide on on the 
developer page that link to specific lists of bugs that are flagged as 
needing documentation.  I don't think we have anything distinguishing 
the pod docs from the user docs though so you'd have to look at the bugs 
to see which are which.

Another good thing to look at, since you mention POD specifically, is to 
look at the included perl modules to see if they all actually have any 
POD in them at all.  Last time I looked there were several that didn't 
even have a summary of what the file was let alone any function 
documentation.  That would be a really good place to start if you're 
looking for something to do.

You can, of course, file bugs for each one and attach the patches to the
