Well, I will speak for myself:

1 - Particularly I need to learn a lot about Nixpkgs culture. I really
like it, but when the thing is easy as a GNU Hello package, I just use
NixOS Monitor to update&test. My biggest contribution was, until now,
mpv player and maybe Altcoins (alas, I need to update and search for
more of them!).

2 - I am seriously studying to port Mate-Desktop and Trinity Desktop,
two huge and confused projects to me. I am doing some hacking here and
there, and when they became stable, I will do a huge and serious
pull-request! :)

3 - Well, if I can be useful, just talk to me and I will do my best!
