Welcome to the wonderful world of PyPy ;-) Your contribution and interest 
is most welcome!

No need - but please tell us a bit more about your Python experience and 
also if there is anything specific aspect of the PyPy challenges you are 
extra interested in.

The project you mentioned looked very interesting! Any technical 
challenges from that one that you think PyPy can benefit from?

Please read through the documentation - hopefully that will make your 
start easier, also see the svn section. Holger will get your commitrights 
up and running soon I hope.

We are a bit focused on the upcoming sprint in Paris. We will try to 
answer questions here or on #pypy-dev (or #pypy) on irc.freenode.net 
during the sprint but things might get hectic during the next week. We 
might not be very active on our regular communication channels - but we 
are excused because of the huge increase of commits ;-)

Well - we are not a team to say no to such motivated help ;-)
