I'm quite new to SVN too, learning too. There are two thoughts that are helping me overcome my barriers:
* I can send to the mailing list the text of a news, and other people more experienced can integrate it in the file in Alioth via SVN. That's a way of contributing too, until I feel comfortable with SVN.

* Versioning systems allow changes to be reverted, so I can ask for help in the IRC if I get lost or do a mess. No fear, or at least, better to be connected to the IRC channel when deciding to make changes in the repository. This is more fun, too!

Hope it helps!
