Well, it would be a full-time job for _every_ project to go and list the help
they need. We have what - "just" a couple hundreds of the projects? Or and
there's "How to Contribute" page on virtually all of them. If you aren't
sure what project you want to join or how to contribute to one you already
know about - there's also Google search. Let me help you here

    https://www.google.com/search?q=how+to+contribute+to+apache+hadoop&oq=how+to+contribute+to+apache+hadoop&aqs=chrome.0.0j69i57.4457j0j7&client=ubuntu-browser&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=93&ie=UTF-8

There, the top link is what you need. Enjoy!

Cos [a good mentor]
