-Your first engagement with the project should be to subscribe to our
-[mailing lists][11].
+OpenOffice is a large, complex open source project, with a project culture developed over
many years as an 
+independent, combined with our experience at Apache.  
 
+If you are familiar with Apache-style open source 
+development then you might just jump in.  Subscribe to a relevant project [mailing list](http://incubator.apache.org/openofficeorg/mailing-lists.html)
+and introduce yourself.  We'll help you get started. 
+
+If, however, you are new to Apache, or want a more methodical approach to getting started,
then we have a set 
+of graduated [New Volunteer Orientation Modules](http://incubator.apache.org/openofficeorg/orientation/index.html)
designed 
+for new volunteers that takes you through a number of background topics related to Apache
OpenOffice and how 
+we do things.
+
+Which path you take is up to you and is a matter of personal preference.  You can even do
both.

+We also maintain a list of specific areas where we need volunteers on our 
+[Help Wanted](https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OOOUSERS/Help+Wanted) page of the
wiki.
