Hi Dennis,
Sounds great. We'd love to have you contributing...

As Glen mentions, jira issues are an excellent way of identifying  
work that needs to be done. I'd suggest you start there.

There's also a Java EE 5 report card -- 
GMOxPMGT/geronimo-java-ee-50-report-card.html. This gives you an idea  
of some of the work occurring on our development trunk.

Suggest that you have a look at the Geronimo coding standards --

There's a placeholder in our wiki about contributing patches -- 
patches.html. It needs a bit of attention... Basically, you prepare a  
patch file and attach it to the jira (make sure you click the "Grant  
license to ASF...").

By posting a request to this list, you can be given "contributor"  
karma to the Geronimo Jira database. This allows you additional  
capabilities (e.g.  issues can be assigned to you). Just need to let  
us know your jira username...
