     3Contributions to GRASS are most welcome. There are a number of ways that you can contribute to help make GRASS a better GIS system. Perhaps the most important way to contribute is to write high-quality code for solving old and new problems, and to make your code freely available for others to use. But not everybody is able to program. Still you can help!

    12 Using the Ticket system is the best way to submit code contributions. See for example #33.
     13For inspiration, we have a wish-list of [report:1 projects and feature requests]. Just pick a task from the list. It may be a good idea to send a small posting to the [http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/grass-dev GRASS developers mailing list] to announce your activities (maybe someone will join you!). Please read [wiki:HowToProgram how to write source code]. We appreciate if you can fix [http://trac.osgeo.org/grass/query?status=%21closed&type=defect&order=id&desc=1 bugs] etc. Using the Ticket system is the best way to submit code contributions if you don't have write access to SVN. See for example #33.
