And feel free to just start tackling patchless bugs/issues reported in 
the bug database ( http://svn.mythtv.org/ ) and trying to reproduce, 
diagnose, and/or fix the issues.  Or, if you want a break from 
debugging/patching, you can also take a look at the feature requests on 
the wiki ( http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Feature_Wishlist and 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Feature_Wishlist_(Plugin_Addons) and 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Feature_Wishlist_(New_Plugins) ).

If you start uploading patches that fix the bugs that we haven't had 
time to diagnose/fix, we'll definitely get to know you fast (and soon 
enough, we may start asking you to work on some bugs for us :).
