+ Every open source project needs some documentation and extensible QA checks. That's what
people (seems to get) used to read when in trouble, after all. It's as important as having
your hands dirty with the source code (some say it's even more important). That's also one
of the easiest way to get familiar with the code. Therefore, it's much appreciated in ''any''
open source project, including Apache Geronimo, when people who want to contribute their time
start with reading [http://wiki.apache.org/geronimo/ the project documentation] and make sure
it's up-to-date. Since you're new and can easily look at the project from a different perspective,
you might find it very easy to spot some mistakes or annoyances. When found, every task/issue/user
request should be reported to an issue system. Go to [http://wiki.apache.org/geronimo/#head-4a88890e5e231cab521003f1074bc0c487a549e6
Issue Tracking] to read about it. Once you're done with documentation, issue reports, you
should try out
  to write some junit tests. They can take some time and once you're done, you will surely
know what to do next.

  == How do I get the latest version? ==
  
  The FrontPage tells where to download binary distributions (for the latest packaged version)
and get the source code from CVS (for the ''latest'' version).
