@Byron Hsu what kind of time are you trying to devote to this? I'd be happy to look through the backend issues and find something that fits.

this issue might be perfect. basically, since backend plugins are currently compiled into flytepropeller, if a plugin fails during the initialization process this may panic flytepropeller and crash the process. the proposed fix is to allow plugins to fail during initialization and log / track those instances. then if a task is executed that requires that plugin it will automatically fail with a message similar to "plugin failed initialization".
this would be in flytepropeller, dealing moreso with the orchestration of backend plugins. another option would be to find a new backend plugin, or a feature for an existing plugin, if you would rather explore that route

fyi, we are also in the process of updating the local contributor experience/dev cycle for the backend
docs for that should be out by the end of the week
at least in pr form

on the admin side, https://github.com/flyteorg/flyte/issues/3065 is would also be good to have.
and there’s another issue with how the single-flyte-binary executable runs some of its goroutines.
but that’s not a GH issue yet, let me write that up.
that’s the last one that i was mentioning, pretty good first issue.
