You can have a look at issues marked 'quickfix' of 'scipy2012 sprint' if you want to 
Just comment on them if you need pointers.

I started contributing 11 month ago, a 10 line patch,  that took me hours to write,
and was restarted from 0 several time to have correct.

So don't despair, you'll get some of the internal eventually,  but you'll need to fight 
with it a little. This is one of the reason we tend to help people making PR even if 
we would have made them much faster.
