Coding ideas for CXF newcomers

There are many interesting areas of CXF that you could potentially work on. Some ideas:

How to submit a pull request

Applying a pull request

Becoming a committer

Hint: submitting pull requests to Jira issues is the best way. It shows that you are digging into the code, are following best practices, writing tests, etc.... It also annoys the developers to constantly have to review patches and if your patches are all acceptable, they'll start the process to grant committership just to stop having to review patches.
