Sure!
I worked on sway for a bit over a year, so I touched quite a few
different parts of the project. For example I have contributed quite a
few small bugfixes to the project, like the following:
Fixing memory leaks:
https://github.com/swaywm/sway/pull/1559
Fixing feature behaviour:
https://github.com/swaywm/sway/pull/1155

Furthermore, I have contributed several features to the project:
Color configuration to a binary:
https://github.com/swaywm/sway/pull/1081/files
Marks (an i3 feature):
https://github.com/swaywm/sway/pull/1145/files

My largest contribution to an open source project so far was the
addition of a system tray to sway. This was over the course of several
pull requests, and is where I get most of my experience with desktop ipc
(the tray used the kde DBus protocol):
https://github.com/swaywm/sway/pull/1234
https://github.com/swaywm/sway/pull/1431

Also this makes sense. Do you know of any TODOs for KWin I could work
on? Of course other projects work too, but I assume that it would be
appreciated more if I get to know KWin before working on it.

Thank you,
Calvin
