Welcome aboard. You now have developer status. (also known as SystemGOD).
When you go to the librarian page (http://www.openclipart.org/librarians)
you will see new boxes to interact with. Have a play around.
*Preamble - Getting plugged in*
You can access the ocal coding by going to the admin interface. Please take
some time to familiarise yourself with how to move around in there. (Also *be
careful* since there you are in the *live site*.) Someone else will be able
to help you set up a test environment if you are interested in such.
I will be taking a look at [Aiki] as i sign up with the mailing list that
> you have mentioned.
There are [more than] two related mailing lists. The one you have signed up
to, is for the generic OCAL mailing list. This will give you information and
conversations from anyone else on that list. These people are Regular users,
Librarians and Developers. I view it as a general mailing list, but it does
have some necessary info coming through it.
The second thing I would like you to sign up to is the OCAL developers team
on launchpad. This is for developers only and the info is really only useful
to developers. We dont spam-bug the regular users with this info. This team
also enables us to talk about some security issues privately as they arise.
Then, check out https://launchpad.net/aikiframework. Sign up to any mailing
list or team there that you would like to. http://www.aikiframework.org/
To modify the OCAL site, it is not necessary to know aiki, nor php. If you
know JS or HTML that is enough to get by. I am not a programmer by any
means, however I am able to cope with what I choose to do. Knowing aiki and
php or other languages will help your goals of course.
IRC = #openclipart on freenode. Also relevant is #aiki.
(Please be clear in your own mind that Aiki and OCAL *are two separate and
different projects*, that have a large amount of the same people working on
and in them.)
OCAL Mailing list = clipart at lists.freedesktop.org
Developers team mailing list = accessible through launchpad.
I am a contact person for OCAL as is any librarian. Each has their own
email. You know mine.
As Oleg has said, there are bugs and blueprints that you could take a look
at to see if there is any that take your interest. The things we are
currently working on in OCAL is outlined in
https://launchpad.net/openclipart/+milestone/3.1. If you find more bugs or
have ideas on improvement feel free to add them to bugs or blueprints.

I am positive that you will :) Even if you do not learn Aiki, I am sure that
you will bring a valuable contribution to the team.
Thanks for accepting my request.
You are most welcome. Glad to have you.
