That's great. I'd love to. I am have been using Gentoo Prefix for more
than 1 year, and Debian for ~7 years. For programming I had (learning)
experiences for Python/Perl/C/Lisp, though in my academic work Python is
used most often. I have been always been a user in the community and now
willing to have a try to contribute as a developer. As a graduate
student, I have at least 4 hours of spare time usually everyday (except
for the exams, thesis/report deadlines, etc.).
I guess becoming a developer particular for Gentoo Prefix is somewhat
different than that of gx86, in that I don't need to do those practice
in the overlays?
Where should I start from now? Maybe this quiz?

Right. For me, I just need some guidance to set things up and go. Hope
people around the list can help me through the process.
