Most of this is answered in the Developer FAQ
(http://developer.gimp.org/faq.html) but I will happily answer your
A good way to get start is to make yourself familiar with
Bugzilla. You can use the predefined queries at
http://developer.gimp.org/bugs.html as a start. Some bugs have the
easy-fix keyword set. Those might be a good start. But we have only
just started to use that keyword, so if a bug doesn't have it set,
doesn't necessarily mean that it is very complex.
We will be releasing 2.2.0 real soon now and will enter a new
development cycle as soon as this has happened (or perhaps wait until
2.2.1 is done). That's a good time to start working on new features.
Just let us know what you are working on and, most importantly, don't
be afraid to ask.
