Some great suggestions for you already. If you want to ease into
things a bit, you might just review what's in BZ as "major" and
Windows related:

https://bz.apache.org/ooo/buglist.cgi?bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&bug_status=CONFIRMED&op_sys=Windows%2C%20all&op_sys=Windows%2095&op_sys=Windows%2098&op_sys=Windows%20ME&op_sys=Windows%20NT&op_sys=Windows%202000&op_sys=Windows%20XP&op_sys=Windows%20Server%202003&op_sys=Windows%20Vista&op_sys=Windows%207&op_sys=Windows%20Server%202008&op_sys=Windows%20Server%202012&op_sys=Windows%208%2C%208.1&op_sys=Windows%2010&priority=P1%20%28highest%29&priority=P2&query_format=advanced&resolution=---



Also we could use a verification of resolution on the Spell Check issue:
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=125501

from a Windows builder.

Have fun and so good that you joined us!
