    Contributing to FOSS is not one day work, you need lots of patience.
Listen carefully to discussions in mailing lists, understand the culture,
hang out in IRC.  See whether you can make small changes in their wiki.
Test all the releases coming out. Go through the bug trackers.  See, whether
you can fix a small issue.  Submit one patch.  Checkout latest trunk code
and try out.  Submit small documentation fixes.  Ask for commit privilege.
Make your changes in branches, then ask others to review.....

See some general advices:
