Fastest one would be to skip the bug report and instead push a patch to

No, that doesn't make sense.

You would need to create a list of the menu items to decide what entry will
get the most natural one and what entries get second choice or
autogenerated one.

newly added items should get an automatically assigned one unless there is
a reason not to.

Finding the place in the source code is not different from finding bad
mnemonics in a translation. Look up the entry in pootle and there you have
the reference. Or grep in the sources. Search in opengrok might also be
possible, but not sure whether you need to escape the mnemonic
marker/whether it includes the character in the search index.
