A few more suggestions.
1. Continue your fine efforts with FreeBSD advocacy in your country. Join or start a users group; write articles or "how to's" for users in your language. Examine the state of documentation in your language, and see if you can help with the documentation in your language.
2. Learn to "port" applications to FreeBSD. See the porter's handbook. Port something useful, and maintain it well.
3. Read lots of source! (also, read lots of the mailing lists....)
4. Take a look at open problem reports via the web interface. Patch something, and post it to the www, then call attention to this patch via the appropriate mailing list. Better yet, submit the patch in reply to the bug report ... perhaps a FreeBSD "committer" will see your patch and use it. If this happens often, or frequently, you may gain a reputation for fixing issues. I have a feeling that many current FreeBSD committers started out this way. Now they are trapped forever, LOL....
