I have been an entusiast xfce4 user for last 2 or 3 years.
I'd like to contribute to xfce development now, in particular I'm intrested in the development of ristretto, thunar and others every-day app.
So I registred to this forum - I don't feel so comfortable with maillists - to ask some help about where to start: this is my first attemp to join an open source project and I'd like to know how things work behind the scenes.
By the way, I'm Ilario, 20 years old, italian student of computer and automation engineering.
Unfortunately, you're going to find easier access to the developers through the mailing lists and possibly the #xfce IRC channel.
