xfce4 Hacking

I was wondering if there is a public how-to (or starter guide) for 
experienced developers interested in Xfce hacking. Also, is there any 
particular bug/feature/project/team/todo where additional help might be 
especially appreciated? Are Jasper and Nick the only active developers?

I've read HACKING and TODO for a couple of projects (panel and goodies) 
in SVN and both of those resources were helpful, but I'm still not sure 
where to begin. Perhaps I should just start hitting Bugzilla-reported 
issues for now?

By the way, I'm an experienced developer (C, x86 Assembly, Perl, PHP, 
Shell Scripting), but I'm a recent convert to (desktop) Linux. 
Previously /all/ my Linux experience has been via an SSH terminal 
connection from a remote windows box. Needless to say, I'm still 
learning the basics of xorg, gtk, xfce, and so forth even from a user 
stand-point. Still, I'm not a clue-less dolt. :)

Thanks for any direction you guys can offer,
-Robert Lee
