For a while don't worry about contributing. Download, build and use for
a while, and just think about it as a black box, or even as magic!

After a while you will surely find your curiosity aroused as to how some
are done, which leads naturally to reading a few header files.

Then, and this may be a quite a while away, have a look some of the trac
defects, and see if they make any sense!

There's no rush - Boost is huge, often complex, and frequently subtle, it
takes a while.
