Welcome! Yes, if you're new to this sort of project it can be tricky to get started. Going through the DevSetup and hopping on IRC will help, as will looking for the Contrib Friendly tasks in our GitHub issue tracking system. Sometimes just browsing the code to find typos to fix / comments to enhance / template headers to fix, then committing can also be a good way to scratch the surface without worrying too much about code :)

Looking forward to seeing you on IRC. There'll probably also be more potential to look at after the weekend, since that's when we tend to be more active (most of us are full-time employed or university bound)

First of all, we have some problems as we are trying to import the project to Eclipse.
We found some steps to follow in the forum but they are not working at the moment.

Post some details or better yet hop on IRC, we can probably sort it out :)

Are you mandated to use Eclipse for the project? There's a free community version of IntelliJ that most of us are using. All the big IDEs are just about the same anyway.

Your best friend in this will be IRC - live assistance is great :)

You can use the web address from a browser, no need to install a client if you'd rather not.

I'm mostly online in US East morning-evening, so afternoon-very late european time.

Good to hear! :)

Step 1 to continue: Get back on IRC so we can finish troubleshooting your Git issue and discuss what would be ideal for you to work on :D

(unless you finished that while I wasn't online, anyway! If so, just discussion left)

I think Kai also suggested posting a thread over in General or Develop to be your journal, he's the teachery kind and that sounds like a great idea ;)
