Welcome,

Most JtR development is based on bleeding-jumbo branch of 
https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper and there are plenty of 
GitHub "issues" open. Some are bugs, many are enhancements or new 
formats. Some are super trivial and some are very hard - or tedious. So 
you could pick anything suitable and we appreciate quality pull 
requests! Then again, you are obviously not limited to existing issues.
