Hi Glen,

Thanks, glad to see emails like yours (and Danial's and Ho Wan's). We 
definitely should be doing a better job bringing people into the project 
but, as it often happens, everybody is rather busy. Xfce definitely 
needs more contributors. And I don't mean just programmers - even 
finding a native English speaker to proof read our release notes turned 
out to be a problem.

Liviu has already given you some starting points, so I won't repeat 
that. Assuming you do want to try your hand at programming, it generaly 
works best to try and find a bug which annoys you the most (so you get 
satisfaction from fixing it) and just start working on it. We kind of 
expect contributors to be able to jump that hurdle. It also happens to 
be the best way of learning the code base, tools, project organization 
and other developers.
