database:</a>:</p><ol><li>provide patches when you find problems</li>
  <li>provide the diffs when you port libxslt to a new platform. They may not
    be integrated in all cases but help pinpointing portability problems
  and</li>
  <li>provide documentation fixes (either as patches to the code comments or
    as HTML diffs).</li>
  <li>provide new documentations pieces (translations, examples, etc ...)</li>
  <li>Check the TODO file and try to close one of the items</li>
  <li>take one of the points raised in the archive or the bug database and
    provide a fix. <a href="mailto:daniel@veillard.com">Get in touch with me
