In one of your mails you mentioned you had a "not a big deal" fix so it 
sounds like you have something already. One hard thing when starting out 
is finding the right list to discuss a fix. There are many OpenJDK lists 
and it often requires a cheat sheet to get to the right place in one 
move. In general I think folks are helpful on the mailing lists and will 
get you to the right place in a maximum of two moves. One thing to know 
is that the "listinfo" pages for many of the mailing lists have a list 
of the areas and APIs that folks on that mailing list maintain, so that 
might help. To my knowledge there isn't a starter cheat sheet although I 
think I heard Martijn mention at one point that he (or someone else in 
the LUC) were considering creating one.
