Right now, I'm finding Diamond bugs by following the Firefox 
priority-backlog meetings and picking up bugs that make it all the way 
there, and are assessed as being of low-to-moderate difficulty, but 
don't get assigned.

Information about how to get them into that process is here:

... and they're being promoted on twitter (@StartMozilla) and to 
successful contributors in Bugzilla looking for the next thing to work on.

More generally, "Diamond" means "this is a high-priority bug that hasn't 
been assigned yet"  - different teams have different ways of gauging 
that, and all I'd like is that they use the same whiteboard flag when 
they do.
