- Report bugs.

- Develop patches to fix bugs (submit to this list for maintainer consideration).

- Develop patches to fix documentation deficiencies you may find.

- Share your experiences, concerns, and ideas.

- Answer questions raised on this list.

- Review library submissions.

- There might be a need to support Solaris builds if you can host one.

- Help those developing new libraries (review the recent history on this list and check for recent sandbox activity).

- Submit a patch for the web site to produce a list like this one so newcomers can find such information more readily!
