well, fixing "a fairly easy bug" is probably not the best way to show 
your skills to the mentoring team. Please have a look at the bug tracker 
and/or the feature requests tracker, pick something that is unassigned 
and mention in the ticket that you are working on it.

I suggest to pick some recent bug tickets or feature requests, as older 
ones may be out of date or more tricky to solve.
