I was just noticing that the number of contributors listed on GitHub is right at 198 At the risk of sounding greedy, and also at the risk of dwelling on arbitrary metrics, I was thinking it would be a great present to the project to reach 200 contributors before the end of 2016!

We can help suggest issues too, if you have questions about where your experience might be most useful. The developer's guide is a great place to get started:
But we are also always happy to answer questions and help people get going.
Thanks, and happy holidays!
An important number, but one which does not include many other kinds valuable of contributions, from ML and SO question answering, to issue submissions, to tweets about cool things done with Bokeh, which are also always very much appreciated.
