    20. Start with patches, one liners are OK. Update thedocs. And go from there. Be more support guythan developer.-Alexander Atanasov
    21. Find who the core contributors in an area are.Talk to them. There is always tons of informationthats just in their heads. No documentation willever match that.-Rachel Blum
    22. You dont have to be a coding wizard tocontribute and make a difference. If you canwrite English prose, chances are you canimprove the documentation, which is typicallythe weakest part of any project.Add a question (and answer) you had about theproject to the project FAQ. Project doesnt havean FAQ? Then start it, including your Q&A.-Andy Lester
