Subject Re: Are there space for a new contributor?

Hi Caio, you're almost about two weeks too early to start 
contributing--MVN3_BRANCH will hopefully be gone in a few weeks at the 
latest, as it will be merged into the trunk.  We're still technically on 
Ant at least for the next couple of weeks while ferociously Mavenizing.  
If you'd like to help out the next few weeks, the best way would be to 
look at the JIRA issue tracker and look at bugs that can be fixed, and 
supply patches to trunk--this would be micro-level coding independent of 
whether we're on Ant or Maven.  Further, for most JIRA bugs, you can 
"mvn clean install [-Dmaven.test.skip]" right now on trunk to get a WAR 
without even needing to use Ant.

Happy to see you volunteering help--in my view, JSPWiki is one of the 
better projects to volunteer time on as it's all standard Java stuff 
highly applicable for many real-life work projects.  Apache can never 
formally guarantee committership, but with enough quality patches and 
sustained contributions it would be highly likely you'd get voted in as 
a committer and have direct write access.
