I think I gave some examples in my other email. The key is that  
contributing be openly welcome, have very little barriers that aren't  
directly related to the code itself, and have an advantage for the  
developer. The advantage, for example, to adding on to BioPerl is that  
as a developer there's an awful lot of code I can easily reuse for all  
the mundane stuff, my code will be seen by and be useful to a lot more  
people, and I can be part of a community that I can learn from or  
exchange ideas with.
