that sounds great!

In fact there is a lot of work in many different areas. For some areas
it may take quite some time to familiarize yourself with code and
concepts but there are also some areas which could serve as a good entry
point to Code Recommenders.
Did you follow the "Fulltext Autocompletion proposal" thread in this
forum? There are quite some people (even from the JDT team) that would
like to see such a completion engine for Eclipse.
We created a simple completion engine that works on regular expressions
so far. But there are quite a lot of things we could/should implement.
* ranking these proposal according to some notion of similarity,
* highlighting chars in the proposal that matched the regular expression,
* extending the concepts to support completion on arbitrary proposals
etc. Since this engine starts on the "green-field" this could be a good
way to start contributing since you have to deal mostly with extending
JDT but don't need to get into the details of Code Recommenders' core
from the beginning.
For sure there are many more ways to contribute like reporting errors,
improving user documentation in the Eclipse Wiki, writing cheat sheets
that show Code Recommenders in action etc. You may also keep your eyes
open for new ideas how Eclipse could be improved and discuss them here.
Many more things are possible.
Is there an Eclipse Indigo Democamp close to your home? You may consider
to present Code Recommenders there? ;)
Let us know what kind of work interests you.

As you mentioned it, Eclipse Legal Process Poster is the only "interesting" official document I found. By the way, your links look great and explain clearly what I was looking for as "first of all information". For the moment, I only have one question to add : is there another way (I mean other than this public forum) to contact project leader/responsible in order, for example, to get involved? The project's home page presents team but nothing like emails...
Your page on Contributor topics is a good simple way to understand where project needs help and to pick up the prefered one to get started.
So, when could I start?? What has to be checked out as project source : the git repo or some other svn? Maybe it is what you are writing about... Please keep me aware, I'm now very excited to start helping you guys!
I checked out source from git in order to have a first look at the existing code, and the first thing I stumbled upon is that you are using Tycho? So great! I had to make it work for some projects in my job so I study it but could not succeed in integrating it in our workflows because of 0.9 version's limitations. I wrote a serie of tutorial articles on my blog in order to spread knowledge Hope this will help!
