Yes we always need more man power. Do you happen to be a j2ee developer?
It would be great to have someone who actively uses things like Tomcat
maintaining/helping in maintaining them.

You can work on everything you like of course. Of course if you don't
want to waste your efforts on something that someone else is already
working on, I recommend joining #gentoo-java on Freenode. That is where
you can find most of the people active in the Java development of Gentoo.

Feel free to ask anything in #gentoo-java. And as a first tip towards
becoming better in fixing, I will recommend to attach to patches against
current ebuilds in the tree because that way developers can easily spot
your changes and give the apropriate feedback.
Also take a look at:
We have a couple of active users committing ebuilds to the experimental
tree. So you can avoid duplicate work by first checking if the solution
is already in experimental. From experimental we developers then move
stuff to the official tree.
