Sure.  It makes a lot of sense :)

I'll also send you a disclaimer form: contributions to Bison must be comply 
with FSF rules.

I would say that you should start with something you are interested in, i.e., 
that you would like to use in Bison.  What's your current use of it?

Good to know, thanks!  You would be good at D too by any chance?  We need 
someone for D :)

M4 is special, no doubt about it.  But in a sense, it's a functional 
programming language.  At least, most part of our use of M4 is FP style.

Whatever it needs.

See all the information Adrian sent.  I would also add that if you plan to work 
on GitHub, it would make sense to fork my repo 
(https://github.com/akimd/bison).  And them, take some time to read README and
