The best way to get started is to read the hacking document
<http://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy-0.14.0/reference/hacking.html>, set up a
github account, and then look through the issues and pull requests for the
numpy repository <https://github.com/numpy/numpy> on github. Documentation
fixes, code review, and bug fixes are all good ways to get involved in
Numpy. If you are unfamiliar with git it will be helpful to read up on it
and if you write code you should also read the howtos and style guides

Also note the bottom posting convention on the list ;)
