Boost consists of 120+ libraries. Look at the libraries, find one or
more in which you are interested, understand the code for that library,
and see if you are comfortable fixing bugs and helping to maintain that

Boost is short of library maintainers so if you find a library in which
you are interested and that library needs an active maintainer, you
could be a future maintainer of that library.

Needless to say if you have an idea or implementation for a high quality
library you can also promote it on this mailing list.
