What needs fixing depends entirely on what your interests are and where
your skills are. I would go here:


Then search Red Hat Enterprise Linux (5, 6 or 7), which is upstream for
CentOS, pick some components you're interested in and see what there is.
Find something you think you can help with and start poking around. If
you think you have a patch or fix, post to the bug and see what people say.

For CentOS specific bugs;


Choose the project you're interested in from the drop-down list on the
top-right of the page, click 'View Issues' and start seeing what grabs
your interest.
