What a timely post to the list. I was just reading
http://www.granneman.com/techinfo/linux/contributewithoutcoding.htm as
someone pasted a link in another Ubuntu channel. I am another one of
these people who took a LONG time to find my way into helping out
where I can even though I can't code or program anything to save my
life. I'd recommend people have a read of the link for some
inspiration if anyone is looking for something to do as a general tool
(it's far from Lubuntu specific but a lot of the ideas can be
transferred to the Lubuntu team).

While Yorvyk has put his hand up for bug triaging I would also like to
let people know I am available to help in the "non-technical" efforts
to anyone. I would recommend attending a bug triaging class even if
it's just to watch and get a better understanding how it all goes
