Getting Involved: Revision 20
Hacking on Perl 6
Hacking on the VM (Parrot)
See the Official Parrot Wiki section on "Contributing to parrot".
Hacking on the Compiler and Related Tasks
Reading Material for Pugs Hackers
Besides these links, the Pugs distribution also provides README, READTHEM and READTOO.
General Perl 6 Tasks
A running list of tasks to work in kept in the repo at TASKS. It's a catch-all list. Something on it is bound to match your skill set!
A specific test to help with is Smart Linking.
Perl 6 Tasks for Perl 6 programmers
Preludification Candidates discusses parts of Perl 6 that can be written in Perl 6.
Hacking the Perl 6 docs
In general, offical docs are stored in docs/Perl6 and docs/Pugs in POD format, and they are fair game to improve directly. The exception is most of the documents in docs/Perl6/Spec which is the official Perl 6 specification. Improvements to the official spec should be suggested to the perl6-language list.

Fundraising and Networking
Anything you could do in the way of fundraising and soliciting $$$ to support Perl 6 and Parrot development would be wonderful. See Perl 6 Sponsors and Supporters.)
Every year, people, companies, and foundations give numerous multi-million donations to universities for new buildings, new faculty, and so on. Perl 6 is at least as important, and will have far greater ultimate techno-economic leverage in the great majority of cases. (Also, don't just think about Perl 6.0 — you want to establish major momentum to carry on through Perl 6.2, Perl 6.4, and so on — including the production of a growing series of CPAN6 power modules.)
