Hi Yuri,

Welcome to the project and welcome to Apache!

I'd recommend reading this page, especially the sections on
"Meritocracy" and "Roles":

http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html

Also, the AOOo project's page here:  http://incubator.apache.org/openofficeorg/

You can send the iCLA to the Apache Secretary at any time.  You do not
need to wait for an invitation.

You are also free to download the source code and submit patches.   If
you do a good job at that, and demonstrate that you work well with
others on the project and are not breaking the build, then a member of
the Project Management Committee (PMC) can nominate you to be a
committer.  If voted in as a committer then you will have direct write
access to the SVN.

I don't want to make any promises, but a good coder who collaborates
well with others on the list, can become a committer quickly.  It
sounds like this will be easy for you.

In any case, I'd recommend starting with simple patches, at a module
level, to make it easier to review.

Also, where are you distributing the OS/2 ports?

Regards,

-Rob
