Hi Jatin

Welcome to Apache OpenOffice. We appreciate any and all contributions. If
you are looking for some development ideas, you can do what I do: read
through Bugzilla to find something interesting to work on.

Is there anything in particular you would like to develop? I would be
willing to mentor you.

Damjan
