Gaurav, the key point here is interest - if you have your favourite tool on
the Ubuntu project, then join the list and start following the discussions
there and hopefully that should give you the opportunity to start helping
and contributing code .
That said, most people start off becoming contributors by scratching their
own itch. What that means is that if you want a feature that is missing in
one of your favourite tools, just check out the code and create the feature
or submit a patch. If the maintainer of that software is happy with your
contribution, they might consider giving you write access to the code.
