There's 'make recheck' to rerun the failures, or `make check-local 
TESTSUITEFLAGS='1 2 3'` just to run tests 1 2 and 3.  See README-hacking.

Definitely my job!  Happy to help!

Gee...  Lemme think...

It really depends what you'd like to do.  You reported you're fluent in C++.  
Something quite interesting would be to enable push-parser in lalr1.cc.  It's 
more ambitious than the subcomplain task, but it will probably take you less 
time, because it's more compact, it will impact much less code.
