If you are on this mailing list you are now almost ready to contribute
-check out and build from the repository; trunk is where features get
added; branch-0.23 where the next release will come. Branch 0.20.x is
for backported bug fixes, branch-0.22 is for something between 0.20.x
and 0.23 whose future release plan is still indeterminate.
I'd go for trunk for anything interesting.
Get involved with JIRA issues, use the process of test-driven
development to replicate bugs as well as patches.
all your code should
-be designed to make sense to any other developer reading it five or
more years from now.
-be designed to scale to thousands of machines
-not contain hard-coded assumptions about the underlying OS, network etc.
