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[1]?

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. Yours, Benda -- XU Benda Research Center for Neutrino Science Tohoku University JAPAN
