Hi,

at first I'm new at this list (I subscribed yesterday), so excuse me if I 
write stupid things... possibly there is a page or FAQ about this subject, 
but I really didn't find it.

I want to help and I don't know where. I tried to find a page at gentoo.org 
which lists needed manpower or at least gives some hints, but I didn't find 
nothing. Also the support is for people who search for support and not for 
people who want to support Gentoo. That's not the point of my mail at all, 
but possibly there should be some (better placed) information about this 
subject?

O.K., I want to describe my person a little bit. Sincerely I come from Poland 
and live in Germany now. I speak Polish, German and English. I am 20 years 
old and studying computer science at the University of Bremen. I'm in the 
middle of my studies now. I use Gentoo since a lot of years (I forgot the 
exact date), before Gentoo I used a self-made distribution based on LFS. I 
can write applications in C(++), Java and PHP. Personally I write rather 
end-user applications, but during my studies I also had exercises like "write 
your own file system (O.K., it was FAT12 ;)", "write your own memory 
management" etc. So basic knowledge about operating systems should also be 
there. My knowledge in XHTML and CSS is also good, because it's my job for 
more than five years.

I think this should be enough for a first profile. I can tell more, if 
somebody wants to know more. Can anybody tell me how can I help? Is my help 
needed or should I rather participate somewhere else?

Greets,

Rafael Bugajewski
