I think it would be fun to contribute to the rust ecosystem (in particular the compiler), I don't really have any knowledge of how compilers work generally and I certainly do not have knowledge of rustc so I do have a few questions. 1. is there a particular area of the compiler that is most suited for someone who is less experienced? 2. Are there any other resources besides https://rustc-dev-guide.rust-lang.org/about-this-guide.html that I should consider learning from, perhaps I should be reading a general compilers book? Thx :)

Adding diagnostics to the parser for some cases tends to be a good entry point

generally adding diagnostics
