Hello Benjamin,

thanks for contacting us. Contributions are welcome to the Apache Ant project.

One way of contributing is to look at the bug database, in the case of Ant it is in Bugzilla
and picking one or several entries and try to either evaluate/update existing patches or to
create a solution including code, test cases and documentation changes.

You can also come up with your own suggestions of improvement/extension/…

I am unfortunately these days not very active in Apache Ant, but the best contact points for
Apache Ant are the distribution lists and

If you are interested I also recommend that you try to help with Apache Ivy which is also
part of the Apache Ant project.

Best regards,
