With everything that is going on, I have found myself with a lot of
free time and would like to help with development. I have experience
in software engineering but have never worked on an open source
project. Please let me know what I can do to help.  

Best is to start by building gimp from source. If you run into
difficulties (this is not uncommon, don't worry) or if you succeed,
then find an IRC client and join in the #gimp channel
where the developers tend to be found.


Sounds like good advice and I'd like to note that I have created a tool to
automate part of that task:

I'd be happy to hear any success or failure stories with using it.

On a more general note, I have provided some guidance for people who wish to
become FOSS contributors here:


Good luck!
