Have you already written an application in GTK+? Have you already
written a library based on GLib/GTK+?

Just find a bug that annoys you, see if it's already filed in bugzilla,
and try to fix it.

As a general rule of thumb for free software, look at the HACKING file
to see how to contribute (there is usually also a README file which
refers to the HACKING file, so… read the docs!).

If you attach a patch to the bugzilla, sometimes it takes a while before
getting a response. If you don't have any feedback, a solution is to ask
on IRC.

Happy hacking,
