Typically, one takes a look at JIRA and see what's reported and not yet 
assigned or ask if an assigned task is really being done. Once the issue 
is picked up, one sends an email to the dev mailing list and announce 
that it's worked out. During development, one can join IRC and ask 
questions there, and send wrapups to the dev mailing list to keep people 
updated (chances are someone else would be willing to help, too). Once 
the issue/task is done, a patch is attached to the issue/task. One of 
the Geronimo committers will then commit it to the repo. Upon successful 
commit, celebration takes place, probably with granting the commit 
access to the repo.
