Writing new examples or porting decoding_encoding.c and
demuxing_decoding.c to use codecpar and send/receive packet/frame.
Writing documentation with steps to migrate applications using
old APIs to new ones like the above, so we don't have to deal
with tons of projects sticking to deprecated APIs two years from
now and blocking or complicating their scheduled removal.

Maye also adding or extending doxy on public and private header,
sort of like what Timothy did the last couple days, but as Paul
said, coding related there's probably not a whole lot left that
can be easily done by students.
