Now that you mentioned web coding... my ideas have just opened up.
Here are some bugs dealing with web stuff:
http://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?string=web&project=1&search_name=&type=&sev=&pri=&due=&reported=&cat=&status=open&percent=&opened=&dev=&closed=&duedatefrom=&duedateto=&cha ngedfrom=&changedto=&openedfrom=&openedto=&closedf rom=&closedto=&do=index
also, don't forget that http://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?project=2
(aur) is full of web related bugs.
For something more concrete, my 2 pet peeves for the arch website are:
1. inconsistent headers between the new headers and the bugs/aur header
2. websvn is b0rked and needs some repairs.
If you can fix those, that would be awesome
Btw, you can do whatever you think will improve archlinux.
Hope this helps.
