I have found the mozilla community to be very helpful and each project has a very good list of mentored bugs. The community has found http://www.joshmatthews.net/bugsahoy/ to be a very good tool for beginning contributors to get the right first bug and step into the whole community. Best way to get involved remains to ping to #introduction on IRC (irc.mozilla.org)

Regarding discovering them algorithmically tends to be quite an interesting idea actually, should think more on this.
