Hi Andrea,

Thanks for your interest in contributing to Ubuntu server! It seems 
there's a lot you can do, so it mostly depends on what you would like to 
do. Here are a few pointers

- We're currently reviewing the ubuntu server guide in preparation for 
Oneiric. It would be awesome to take ownership of a subchapter and start 
reviewing it in the next 2 weeks. For more info, please check this 

- A lot of work is also going into Ensemble, the Ubuntu server 
orchestration tool. A lot of work is needed there to start covering 
open-source applications with ensemble formulas. You could pick your 
favorite app, and start hacking a formula around it. This is something I 
can directly help you with. You can learn more about Ensemble at: 
https://ensemble.ubuntu.com/ (we're all in #ubuntu-ensemble)

- Another contribution path, since you mentioned you had development 
experience, is to simply pick up an ubuntu server bug, and to start 
working on fixing it! Here is a good start: 
You can ask questions in #ubuntu-server

Hope that was helpful. Enjoy and start crunching :)
