If you would like to get involved with the Jetty project there are a number of ways you can participate.
Get Involved with the Code
If rolling up your sleeves and digging into the codebase is interesting, one of the best places to start is at the github project here. If you are looking for a bit of inspiration on what to work on, take a look at the issues for the project where we maintain a Help Wanted tag. The Jetty project uses Apache Maven as the build system and there are coding conventions that we would appreciate you following documented here. Please keep in mind that as an Eclipse project there is a bit more administrative burden required on your part to contribute code, information on that can be found here.
Get Involved in the Documentation
Jetty documentation is maintained alongside the source but don't let that dissuade you from from contributing to the documentation, it is a great place to build commit karma and help the community at large. You'll need to follow the same rules as committing to the code which can be read about here.
Get Involved in the Community
StackOverflow is an excellent resource for users with questions and helping them out is a great way to get involved. The Jetty tag is a great place to start building up that reputation.
