Sorry for a late response. The Apache membership has been busy with the
annual membership meeting and a lot of mails have fallen into the cracks.

First of all, thank you for wanting to volunteering time to our projects.

Secondly, there is no "central planning" of handing out volunteers to
projects. Instead, whoever wants to contribute choose one or more projects
by themselves. You should choose something that interests you, and my
general recommendation, find a "not too big" project initially, since it
can be rather overwhelming in the beginning to cope with the large amount
of emails, not getting someone to assist you in the right direction and so

Once you have figured out what you want to work on, check the JIRA issues,
see if there is things that are within your capability and reach out to the
dev@ mailing list of that project, indicating your desire. In small,
mid-sized projects, there will often be someone who will help you get
going, if you drive your own progress.

Good Luck and Welcome.
