There is also a non-wiki list of beginner projects at http://gcc.gnu.org/projects/beginner.html, however, it is very outdated and the projects are not that easy.

Other easy projects without a PR are (you can help by opening a PR for them and moving them to the list above):

  • Delete unused variables and functions. A list of potential candidates is here, current as of 2010-05-30. Note that some functions and variables there are not unused, for example, debugging output helpers.

  • Constify read-only variables. A list of potential candidates is here, current as of 2010-05-30.

  • Change the vectors in genautomata.c to be sbitmaps instead of the current adhoc implementation.
