That would be very good indeed.  Please do ask here if you have any
questions, we're very happy to help (and grateful for your
contribution).

Aha - you have a little journey ahead of you :)

There's a step-by-step guide here:

http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/dev/gitwash/index.html

In essence, what you'll be doing is:

Making a github account
Forking the numpy repository to your own account
Cloning your copy of numpy to your own computer with git
Making a feature branch like 'wavfile-length-fix'
Making the fix (with a test that tests the effect of the fix)
Committing the fix
Pushing your new branch back to your copy of numpy on github
Making a pull request.

These steps should be covered in the document(s) above, but please let
us know if anything is not clear.

Cheers,

Matthew
