I got the same impression, and most of these sites require non-free
JavaScript. What outdated conventions are you talking about then? I'm a
new contributor and I'm born close to ~2000. The "hardest" aspect of
contributing until now has been signing the copyright assignments, which
takes a couple of days and I'm currently doing it, but this also isn't

Using Gnus made it easy to follow the mailing lists. Debbugs is also
easy to use to track bugs. So I can contribute to Emacs without having
to exit Emacs, it's very comfy IMO.

I also like the code style conventions like not using too long lines,
since I can look at 3 different buffers at the same time.
