It doesn't hurt at all to get to know the team; if you can, join us at
#xubuntu-devel on the Freenode IRC network [1]. Just bravely shout out
-- people will be able to help you with this and that, including Bzr and
Docbook. Eventually you notice you know a good bunch of people and have
the skills to start contributing.

Thanks for the interest and welcome!
