If you want to jump into the technical side of things, see
"advanced-tech.txt" (or perhaps you have already done this).  To
get an introduction to the non-technical side of the job, I
recommend editing one of the unclaimed sections of NR1.  (see
"current.txt")  "Text" has not been touched yet, while "Pitches"
is almost perfect.  Are you familiar with texinfo?
My main career was as a programmer.  Given that I am concerned about
the time it would take to learn how someone else's code works well
enough to be able to help there.

Quite reasonable.
I have actually looked at the scheme code a bit and have learned some Python partly to be able to understand GNU Solfege. That knowledge certainly can't hurt. After years of being a Forth expert C++ was my language of choice so who knows where any of that will go.
In light of your last email I would be willing to try to work on writing/revising a section of the doc's that needs work if it's something I have enough knowledge of.

Ok; NR 1 Pitches is the most urgent thing at the moment.  Or
perhaps "urgent" isn't the right word... I'd just really like to
have one "perfect" section, so that in the future I can point back
to it.

Once you've finished reviewing Pitches (more for content than
presentation), we'll see which sections are currently not being
worked on.  We're only doing NR 1 at the moment, and we'll
probably have two or three unclaimed sections.
Ok. I have a copy of pitches.itely and have looked at the guidelines on your site.
