I'm trying to make my first inroads in the Open Source communitiy. I've established communication with the Rhythmbox team. I would like to be able to help more but I'm just learning the GNOME/GTK API and getting back into C.
Oh well ... I find another way to contribute. I can test and learn how to submit bug reports. Once I learn the GNOME/GTK API better I might be able to offer patches also.
