How Drupal.org is lowering the barrier to become a module maintainer

Before anything else, I want to point out that while this post will focus on maintaining a contrib module on drupal.org, that is just one of the many ways to contribute to the Drupal project. Every contribution is important whether it's a core patch, a documentation edit, a translation, or something else. If you use Drupal, please consider how you might be able to give back to the community. If you're already contributing, then thank you!

The first step probably involves choosing a CSS preprocessor to make your stylesheets programmable and accelerate the production of code. There are several out there which are widely supported, but the ones we really like to use are SASS and Compass. This article explains how to set up these tools for use within Drupal.
