Please consider:

1. Do not answer via PM, always via mailing list  (see https://daniel.haxx.se/
2. Do not top post (search the internet for the reasons)

You found the mailing list, so you also found the bug tracker !?
(If you go there, you'll see that it is normally not about having C skills. 
much more of having knowledge/experience with internet protocols, debugging, 
API/library ecosystem and the like.)
Maybe you'll find something you like to work on.

First clone the project and build it on your own. By this you learn your daily 
tools (git, build tools, auto* tools, make, etc).
Now try to reproduce one of the open bugs with your freshly built wget binary.
 If you can't reproduce, add this info to the bug tracker, so we can possibly 
close the bug as 'not reproducible' or 'fixed'.
If you can reproduce it, go ahead with reading the source code and try to find 
the part that you want to fix. Fix it, post your fix/patch on the mailing list 
for discussion/review. If you come to this point, you are already done.

If you struggle because of missing knowledge regarding building and/or 
debugging, using git or whatever: First try to consult the internet (it's all 
there), second ask on the mailing list for assistance.
