I have lot of experience with Java/Networking concepts,REST API,web experience.I find myself able to work on following interesting ideas:- a) PAC4J based universal authenticator b) Add a REST API to XWiki Notifications c) Improve DokuWiki importer I am little bit confused on how to start? How can i show my worth to you or should i directly focus on proposal or any bug patches first or discuss my solution first? I expect mentors of above projects help me.
