The area's I've worked in, that I've had to figure out:

* Creating scripts to select records based in a known field value 
(including no value)
* Creating importers
* creating exporters
* Modifying phrases & templates... and when they get picked up
* Modifying config scripts & package files.... and when they get picked up
* SWORD (1.3 & 2.0)

Some of this I've documented on the wiki - some I haven't
