[llvm-dev] How to help improve debug experience w/ optimizations enabled?

I'd like to help improve the debug experience in LLVM/Clang when optimizations are enabled, but I'm not sure where to start.
I've seen the umbrella bug for poor debug experiences (38768 https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38768 ).
Is there any bug in this list that isn't being looked at (and that doesn't require a lot of knowledge) that I could work on?

I also tried using Dexter (https://github.com/SNSystems/dexter ) to find issues, but it's hard to find something that I can fix in a reasonable amount of time using Dexter alone as I don't have enough LLVM experience to know where to look at/what to look for.

In general, if I want to find bug reports about missing debug info/poor debug experience, where should I look at?
e.g. bug trackers for clang-built projects, particular code examples, issues you encountered but haven't reported yet, etc.

Thank you.

Kind regards,
Pierre van Houtryve
