"How do I join an existing project? »
To locate an existing project which would be of interest to you, consider making use of the search feature of the SourceForge.net site, the Software Map, and the Project Help Wanted page (where projects who are looking for help may post "help wanted" messages; accessible using the 'Project Help Wanted' link in the left navbar of the SourceForge.net site). Once you have determined which project you wish to join:
Go to the project page for the project in question and examine the information they provide there, particularly:
1. Mailing Lists
2. Discussion Forums
3. Project Home Page
4. Project Help Wanted (Job postings), which will be shown in bold on the project summary page if present
One of the above may list information useful for joining the project. If the project has not provided specific information about joining their team, please contact the project administrator(s) for the project (shown in the upper right-hand corner of the Project Summary page) directly and volunteer your services."
