Well, mentors are mentors really. They provide the direction and
answer questions, but expect you to be learning fast, commincating
regarding road blocks you run into and, as Alexia pointed out, getting
the work done.

Test #1. Compile all of the prerequisites. You are supposed to have
build system working by the time coding starts and understand basics
of Git (checking out, branching, updating local branch from upstream,
committing, pushing).

Test #2. Study how the code is organized. provides an
overview. Feel free to ask additional questions.

Test #3. Pick a couple of minor issues from bugzilla (feel free to
discuss, which ones) and provide patches.

The outcome: both of us will understand if you are up to the task, so
that you don't quit the project in the future.

We use IRC as the main communication channel.
