It is good to hear that you are interested in contributing to Geronimo.

In order to get access to submit new documents or code, you first need 
to submit a CLA.

Here is a link to help you find them:

I would suggest emailing rather than mail/fax if possible.

Once your CLA has been processed and recorded, you will be able to get 
commit access to the wiki.
