Where are 'make-dictionary', 'dictionary-add!', and 'dictionary-set!'
defined?  Anyway, we already have a similar example in the manual:

Glad to hear it!  We can certainly use more help :)

We generally start out by asking new contributors to post their proposed
patches to guile-devel or bug-guile for review, preferably in the format
produced by git-format-patch.  We push them when they're ready, with the
new contributor listed as author of course.  We grant commit access to
regular contributors after we've gained some confidence in their
abilities and their knowledge of Guile.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have, either here
or on IRC: #guile on

Thanks for your interest, and welcome to our community!
