Well, it depends on what aspect of Bison you would like to work
on. The TODO file has a few ideas, although many of them are
somewhat outdated now, so if you pick up an idea in there, we
should first discuss about it.
I confess I wish we had a push-parser interface for C++, so if
you are familiar with C++, that would be a nice addition to
lalr1.cc. It will not require that you change the bison binary,
just the C++ skeleton.
Another item on my wish list would be the ability to support
several %start symbols, and let the user specify with which
she wants to start her parsing.
But maybe you have ideas of your own?
