Many of the ideas on that page are stale. I believe that the most
promising approach would be to figure out what area of the system
you're most interested in, e.g. networking, file systems, virtual
memory, scheduling etc., make an honest appraisal of your development
abilities (the rate at which you can come up to speed working with a
large body of code and your ability to read technical documentation),
and then contact the mentor for one of the "Ideas" in your area of
interest to discuss how to proceed further. In order to have any
likelihood of success you'll need to find someone who is willing to
take the time to discuss things with you on a regular basis.
I hope this helps.
