Topics for beginners

Hi Subrat,

well finding topics for beginners on the graphics stack are usually not 
an easy task because it is a rather complicated piece of software.

I suggest to just start with setting up a build and test environment and 
start to run piglit (our testing suite) on a fully self compiled stack 
(kernel, libdrm, ddx, mesa).

If you find any bugs while doing this (and there still are a couple I 
guess) you can start to narrow those down.

Additional to that is there any particular area you are interested in? 
E.g. kernel development, video codecs or frontend stuff (OpenGL, OpenCL)?
