I'm relatively new to the project also.

Here is some info that was passed on to me to get started:

If you haven't already, please be sure to see

And in particular

Amongst other things, the above tells you where the unit tests are, and

It's probably best to develop on mac or linux.  Personally I think, that
since the latest ubuntu includes a recent-ish version of mono and
monodevelop, that's the easiest way to get setup.  (But I loves me some
sourcetree, so I prefer to work on the mac instead, despite a little more
effort required to build.)

The source is on github.  Fork & pull request.

Discuss stuff on this mailing list first, so as to avoid wasted effort.
Thanks for offering to help.

You should see if you can build the sources from scratch (on linux or mac)
