hi Micah,


There is no set process for assigning the JIRAs.

1) If you want to do something (or already did something) with no
JIRA, feel free to open one and self-assign
2) If there is an unassigned JIRA, feel free to claim it
3) If you wish to work on an assigned JIRA that someone else has
claimed but you are unsure of its status, feel free to ping on JIRA to
ask for the status

Once you complete a JIRA, open a PR on GitHub prefixed with
"ARROW-XYZ: ..." -- I will be happy to review your code there (we have
not set up any other code review tools) if C++/Python-related.

Cleaning up the build scripts with more helpful error messages and
better portability across platforms would be very helpful for
