Welcome!

While it may seem easier at first to work from source snapshots, you 
will really need to check out the source code using subversion so you 
will be able to create diffs of your patches.  There is some 
information on getting the source code here: 
http://geronimo.apache.org/svn.html

When you find an issue you are interested in working on, you may want 
to discuss it on the dev list to make sure no one else is almost done 
fixing it and to find out if anyone has advice or opinions on the best 
solution.  Many jira issues are assigned to a developer already but 
that usually does not mean that the issue is being actively worked on.  
Often issues are assigned to the person who knows the most about a 
topic with the hope that they will eventually fix them.

In any case, feel free to ask questions!

When you have a fix you want to contribute, run svn diff to get a patch 
file and attach it to the jira issue, being sure to check the licensing 
box so we can actually apply the patch.  One or more committers will 
review it and if there are no objections apply it.  If you make 
sustained and significant contributions we will eventually vote to give 
you commit status.

Many thanks,
david jencks
