Confirming bugs may be one small part I can contribute.
I have looked at the bugs list when I filed one myself.
The procedure for filing a bug
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport suggests searching for bugs
first, the search tool is not user friendly.
Also that link suggests discussing the bug in users list for confirmation.
It would be useful if the procedure for bug confirmation could be listed
clearly. Looking at the bugs it is not clear how a bug is moved from NEW
to UNCONFIRMED to CONFIRMED.
