Jump in and start doing something for Debian. Whether that is finding
fixes for open bugs in our BTS that do not have patches yet, writing
documentation, translating stuff that needs to be translated, or
packaging software that needs to be packaged (or help package software
where the maintainer asks for help), is up to you. You can ask on
debian-mentors if you need more help (this isn't really a mailinglist
for beginner-level questions relating to debian development;
If you do this well enough, people you cooperate with (your sponsor,
other translators, etc) will most likely be willing to advocate you.
Fun will now commence
