Hi! You have hit the wrong mailing list and have ostensibly selected a wrong way to approach your target. First, this list is used to help Git users with their problem with using Git; the developers of Git do not participate in this list. If you want to reach the devs, post to the main Git list;  details how to do this. But before you do this, consider these two things: - First, Git is mostly written in C, with some parts of it written as POSIX shell scripts, and in Perl (two "stock" GUI front-ends are written in Tcl and using the Tk toolkit). Thus, I, for one, fail to see how your skillset could be usefully applied to Git. Git has a website , but to my knowledge it's a static set of pages generated from some markup sources. Also note that Git is a pretty "hard-core" project for a newfangled developer. I'd recommend to embark on simpler things for a useful start. - Second, I'd recommend to start with studying what's already there. To my knowledge, the way for students to participate is through GSoCs, in which Git is usually featured. So start with reading, say, this recent discussion  and study other past discussions related to GSoCs . 1. https://gist.github.com/tfnico/4441562#writing-an-email-to-the-developers-list 2. https://git-scm.com 3. https://public-inbox.org/git/CAJKt3eP+BZkfK_yn3KYWMgmJB8_18UFr5eizmdGOY_4vM5=a...@mail.gmail.com/ 4. https://public-inbox.org/git/?q=GSoC -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
