Actually, according to the Jacob Kaplan-Moss's talk at PyCon this year (
http://pycon.blip.tv/file/4881071/)
(with which I am inclined to agree), documentation is probably not the best
way to get started.

Do check out the developer zone, maybe search the the open tickets and see
if there are any bugs you want to tackle.
Maybe write some tests for untested code you find.  If you have questions,
don't hesitate to ask.  And don't forget
to test and document your own code!

Be Well
Anthony
