Thanks very much.
I am glad to hear about your interest in ApacheDS and your wish to contribute.
Let me answer some of your questions inline ...

No problem there's always a first time :).
I am looking to possibly make some additions to Apache DS. I see that I need to use my svn cilent to make a patch an submit that as a 'contributor' to a 'commiter' that will review and submit the changes.
My question is: Where does that get sent? Does that go to a particular mail address(individual), or to the dev list?
Well the best way to do this is to create a JIRA issue. If you have a fix for a bug or a
feature mark the issue respectively. Then just attach your patch to that issue.
Although some emails get sent automatically to inform us of JIRA activity it might also be
a good idea to post an email to this list with a link to your JIRA issue. Perhaps this might
generate some good discussions around your concerns as well.
I did not see the last step anywhere -- or I missed it reading over the general Apache stuff. Perhaps its individual per Apache project?
That might very well be the case. There is some variability there for each project. However
I think JIRA is a great interface for holding your contributions.
