Anyone is free to work on any item they desire.  It's wise to check in 
first for advice and to make sure two people aren't working on the same 
item, but nothing is stopping people from working on their own.  The 
entire concept of "joining the community" is a little vague.  There's 
nothing to join other than this mailing list and joining the list is open 
to all.

This mailing list is the primary source for all discussion, patch 
distribution, review and everything else.  We've got a CVS repository [1] 
to distribute the code.  Recently I've put a lot of the open items into 
the gforge trackers [2], but that's really just a summary of previous 
mailing list discussions organized in one place rather than an alternate 
stream of new information.
