Start working on a Project

Hi,
I have worked on arduino and atmega16a before. In my past the only experience I have is in making a library for interfacing lcd jhd162a for atmega 16a. I have gone through the BBB manual. I will be getting BBB in 1 month. I have gone through the ideas of many projects listed on beagleboard.org, but since I am a newbie to BBB, I am not getting that from which project should I start contributing to. Till I get my BBB is there any way (theoretical or simulation) by which I start contributing to any project in beagleboard org? Is there any bug to be fixed to any project where I can start working and learn more about it and help in contributing. Please help.
Looking forward to working with beagleboard org.
