1. Contributed code should follow the GNU Coding Standards and
the "Tips and Conventions" Appendix of the Emacs Lisp Reference.

2. For non-trivial contributions to GNU Emacs we require that the
copyright be assigned to the FSF.

3. You'd better write your patch based on the latest version (bzr
trunk).  Then bundle your patch, description, ChangeLog up in a
mail message and send it to the developers.

4. Or you can creat a task branch, work on it, and publish it on

5. You can also request for inclusion of the Emacs group in
Savannah[2].  If you are a member, you can merge to the upstream
master directly.

6. As for which task to take, it depends on your Emacs knowledge.
There are simple tasks like remove leading `*'s from defcustom
doc-strings.  There are also important features like removing the
limitation that window and frame widths and heights can be only
full columns/lines.

7. If you don't know what to learn, you can have a look at this

8. If you think of new features to add to etc/TODO, please
suggest them too.

9. As Glenn said, you can also fix bugs in debbugs.
