+ <li>Submit patches for new features or bug fixes. Pick any

+ maintainers don't already know your work, this is a good way
+ to become known as someone they can trust to do good
+ work.</li>
+ <li>Become part of a particular library's community, and
+ become known to the library maintainer(s) by participating in
+ design discussions (some libraries, e.g. Spirit, have their
+ <a href="/community/groups.html#projects">own mailing
+ lists</a> where you'd do that).</li>
+ <li>Come up with a library idea of your own and begin the
+ <a href="/development/submissions.html">library submission
+ process</a>.</li>
