Hi Alexander,

Thanks for the info, and sorry for taking so long to reply. I'm
essentially interested in writing code (application development and
some maintenance), but I'm also quite certain I wont be able to write
production quality code yet. I've tried, and found that I tend to get
stuck at places that generally relate to conventions and standard
practices. I think the best thing for me to do, from my perspective,
is to start by helping out with minor bugfixes and work my way up to
package maintenance, by which time I would have looked at enough code
to have some familiarity with common programming structures, and can
start contributing real code as and when that opportunity pops up. I
don't really mind writing documentation either. I hope I'm making some
sense .. :P. I'll pop by #ubuntu-mozillateam soon to discuss more
about these things.

Thanks again,
