Here's what I said to a similar request in the IRC chat on another day, I'm h01ger there.

<someone> How do we start contributing to the Debian reproducible. The outreachy website
          doesn't provide specific details about the project.
<h01ger>  thats intentional, as we are looking for contributors who can find their own
          way to do contributions
<h01ger>  the irc channel crowd is very good at (some) specific questions but probably
          noone will be able to tell you what exactly to work on. *you* need to pick
          something. we have many issue trackers, with plenty of issues in them.
<h01ger>  and we have issues not yet tracked
<h01ger>  if you have a specific question about something specific, by all means do ask.
<h01ger>  most of our code (but not all) lives on https://salsa.debian.org/reproducible-builds
<h01ger>  https://reproducible-builds.org/docs/ and https://reproducible-builds.org/contribute/
          and https://reproducible-builds.org/docs/ and https://tests.reproducible-builds.org/
          and https://lists.reproducible-builds.org/ are all urls you should visit

shows some areas of possible contributions. Please pick one which suites you!
