Hello Prabhat,

The best way to contribute is to identify for yourself things that you
think are broken, or could be improved, and then propose a patch.  A
couple of ways to identify possible candidates:

* Have you used a commons API, and wished it would do something
  a little more?  or a little different?  In open source circles,
  people often get involved initially by "scratching your own itch"
  as the saying goes.

* Have you called up the bug reports <>
  for the Commons project, and seen any bugs that you can create a
  patch for?

* Have you checked your favorite package's TODO or STATUS files
  for things that have already been thought about, but just are
  not done yet?
