         <p>There are many ways you can get involved in CXF:</p>

<p>1. Participate on the <a href="/confluence/display/CXF/Mailing+Lists" title="Mailing
Lists">mailing lists</a>.  Propose ideas. Comment on others ideas. <br/>
2. Look at the open <a href="" rel="nofollow">JIRA
3. Provide feedback on the current code<br/>
4. Take a look at some of the ideas below</p>

<h2><a name="GettingInvolved-CodingideasforCXFnewcomers"></a>Coding ideas
for CXF newcomers</h2>
<p>There are many interesting areas of CXF that you could potentially work on. Some

	<li>WS-Context &amp; Session support</li>
	<li>An invoker for <a href="" rel="nofollow">Ode</a>
which uses CXF</li>
	<li>A HTML Form based "tester" for WebServices</li>
	<li>XMPP/Jabber transport</li>
	<li>See the <a href="/confluence/display/CXF/Roadmap" title="Roadmap">Roadmap</a>
and jump in and help</li>
	<li>Increasing unit test coverage.  Adding unit tests for areas that are not covered
by current test cases is always valuable to the project.</li>

<h2><a name="GettingInvolved-Howtosubmitpatch"></a>How to submit patch</h2>

	<li>Check out code from <a href="/confluence/display/CXF/Source+Repository" title="Source
Repository">Source Repository</a></li>
	<li>Make your changes, test, and build successfully</li>
	<li>Generate patch using "svn diff"</li>
	<li>Open a <a href="" rel="nofollow">Jira</a>
issue and attach the patch.txt file to the issue.  (make sure you select the "Grant license
to ASF for inclusion" option)</li>

<h2><a name="GettingInvolved-Becomingacommitter"></a>Becoming a committer</h2>

	<li>First off, read about <a href=""
rel="nofollow">How the ASF works</a>.  Most importantly, the sections on Meritocracy
and Roles.   That provides a bit of background.</li>
	<li>The important part is that you need to <b>earn</b> the right to be
a committer, it's not something we'll give you just because your name is James Gosling.  To
earn the right, you need to get involved. (see top section above)</li>
	<li>If you become involved, participate in email discussions, submit patches, etc...
the current devs may invite you to become a committer through a vote.   If the vote passes,
that will trigger a bunch of things such as submitting a CLA, creating accounts, etc....</li>

<p><em>Hint:</em> submitting patches to Jira issues is the best way.   It
shows that you are digging into the code, are following best practices, writing tests, etc....
  It also annoys the developers to constantly have to review patches and if your patches are
all acceptable, they'll start the process to grant committership just to stop having to review
patches.  <img class="emoticon" src="/confluence/images/icons/emoticons/smile.gif" height="20"
