Not really.  The first step for everyone wanting to contribute is to make
sure that you can get a development version of the code through Mercurial
and successfully compile it on your local machine.  Instructions for
contributing are in Appendix D of the manual, but also available here

Once you have cloned the Mercurial repository to your local machine

to build a local copy.

That's great, we want to improve the GUI too.  The code you will want to
examine is in libgui/.  The best way to start is to look on the Octave bug
tracker (https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?group=octave) and change the
display criteria to display bugs marked with category "GUI".  Try picking a
bug and see if you can code a solution.
