Glad you are interested in helping out. It could be too early because the
final list of organizations is not out yet by Google but we're always happy
to see new students and their enthusiasm towards Open Source.

You might want to take a look at Tcl, as most of our codebase is written in
Tcl with some low-level parts in C. Now knowing Tcl shouldn't be an issue,
it can always be learned here [1].

You might want to start by installing MacPorts by source on your machine
and play around a little. Check out the guide here [2].

You have probably seen our Ideas Page on our wiki [3], if you haven't, make
sure to check it out. Most of the useful instructions and the list of ideas
are in there. Look for something that interests you.

If you have any queries, drop a message in the mailing list (cc'ed) or IRC
at #macports on Freenode.
