When you say PR, I'm pretty sure you mean "Problem Reports", and not "Public Relations". Even so, that still covers an awful lot of ground. What sort of thing do you want to work on? I mean, are you looking for heavyweight kernel programming? Porting the latest JDK? Rewriting the install system? If you want to work your way into FreeBSD development, a good place to start is this, and the other FreeBSD mailing lists. There's quite a few problems that pop up that can be solved by fairly easy patches. Submitting a stream of PRs with patches for those problems will earn you karma. Then there's the documentation project: that's a relatively accessible part of the system to get into if you can write coherently. Or there's the ports system. Volunteers to become maintainer for one or more ports -- or to write and maintain new ports -- are always in demand.
