I'm still getting up to speed on Drupal, as soon as you figure
something out there's an update. I kind of feel like one of those guys
in the Western movies who's on the horse chasing the train, I just

I got started contributing bug fixes to the docs. No better learning
experience than following an example and having it mysteriously fail.
And there's no better time to write docs than when you've just figured
something out, all the questions are still fresh in your head and it
hasn't started to seem obvious. Docs are a great way to give back and
there's plenty of changes in 4.7 that need to be noted.

If you've got some time there's plenty to be done,
