Thanks in advance. 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. magnum
