I'm an undergraduate student in the CS department
of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh).

Last year I successfully completed GSoC with Mixxx [1] and this year I
would like to work on LLVM.

I am interested in "Improving debugging of optimized code" [2].

I have gone through the kaleidoscope tutorial and I've set up a basic
dev environment for LLVM and clang. I've also set up a bugzilla account.
I'd like to start working on some bugs to get acquainted with the code
base, but bugzilla is pretty overwhelming for a newcomer like me. If you
could suggest me some bugs (not necessarily related to the
aforementioned project) I would appreciate it.

I would also like some more information about the first goal of the
project, like an outline of the procedure you have in mind for gathering
debug loss metrics.

I'll be in llvm's IRC with the nick "gramanas" in case you want to PM me.
