Hi, you are welcome to contribute! :-)

Here's a list of all the Commons bug trackers in Jira:

I am not sure what you are interested in, you mentioned Commons-Lang,
so something generic?

Here are some ideas:

If you are more of a refactoring guys, then we need to kick-start some
ideas/drafts/branch for moving to Java 7/8, e.g. java.nio.file.Path
support for Commons VFS and Commons IO,  or Consumer<> support for
Commons CSV.

To contribute, generally you can just find the repository in GitHub:

and do the usual Fork and Pull Request.

If you prefer to not use GitHub, then visit the component's page to
see its source code info and contribute as a patch file in Jira

For large contributions we might need to ask for an ICLA - but I think
to get started you will be having a go at smaller changes?
