[cfe-dev] Question on where to start contributing to Clang static analyzer

Hi all,

I think Clang static analyzer is a great project and I'm interested in 
contributing. I've watched the "Building a Checker in 24 Hours" talk at 
the LLVM dev meeting, and I've seen the list of potential checkers here: 

So my question is, what's a good place to start and do you have any 
tips?  I have some academic background in symbolic checkers/constraint 
solvers, and I've been developing C++ for a while now.

My idea is to just pick up one of the (simpler) unimplemented checkers 
from the list and implement it to get my hands dirty.
