Write a web application to interface with sqlports
Marc Espie recently wrote to the ports list suggesting that someone write a web application to interface with sqlports, complete with permission to use one's language of choice. sqlports is a database interface to the OpenBSD ports system; more information can be found here.
Write a driver for Broadcom wireless
Theo de Raadt wrote to the misc list explaining that no OpenBSD developers are currently working on support for Broadcom bcm43xx wireless chipsets. So here's your chance to join in on that whole campaign. Message with links to unofficial docs and more information can be found here. Who's up for a challenge from the man himself? :-)
Not everyone has the time or skills to code. If you're one of these, and would still like to contribute, why not donate some hardware? Theo recently wrote to tech@ that the list of necessary hardware has been updated. Have a look at his message here, and the list here. Remember that you don't need to actually own the hardware in order to donate it; many places will let you buy it and then ship straight to the developer.
Sponsor a developer?
bert wrote into undeadly suggesting that users sponsor a developer for just pennies a day. I assume he meant by donating hardware, but who knows? Maybe some of them can be convinced, for the right price, to send you a picture for your fridge and an email about their lives every 3 months. :-)
