I think it's best to start off as a user of Hadoop, with a problem you 
want to solve. Get on the -user lists, learn to use Hadoop. As you use 
it, you will see things you want to improve, or find problems that you 
want to fix. That's when its time to get involved.

I should warn you that Hadoop is a complicated distributed application, 
that makes it much harder to develop and test on than many other parts 
of the Apache codebase.
