Best advice:

1. read the HACKING file

2. re-read the HACKING file :)

3. make a github clone and start hacking on something, eg a bug or
small feature, announce here so we don't have more than one person
doing it and to get advice.

4. read the HACKING file to see what you didn't understand the
importance of before you started :D

5. make a pull request on github to get it included in Geany
