I think the website is missing a "contribute" section which sum up a bit
all you can do, basically:

- url to an up-to-date TODO list (there is one in the multimedia.cx wiki
- url to download section for git and start hacking
- url to bug reports if you want to start by fixing bugs
- url to contact in order to look for help
- url to fate if you wish to fix yellow & red failures
