We are always looking for people who'd like to contribute to the Miranda project and our community. The minimum requirements are a positive attitude and the desire to be a part of the team, so we'd love to hear from people with skills and/or experience in any of the following areas, indeed anyone who would like to help out. Stop by our IRC channels and say hi :)
