I don't think we have any issue or feature request related to XDP or 
AF_XDP that are small enough for that.
There are a couple feature requests that are not very complicated from a 
code point of view and would make a good introduction to the dnsdist 
code at 

If you are looking for bigger things to tackle, perhaps there might be 
of interest to you:

- https://github.com/PowerDNS/pdns/issues/10769

Please drop a comment either here or directly on the related GitHub 
issue if you start working on something to avoid duplicated work.

I'm usually not working on PowerDNS-related topics during week-ends, and 
I might indeed need more than a few days to reply to non-urgent e-mails 
during some busy periods.
