Before you think about contributing to the project, please read through
the contribution checklist to make sure that you understand what it means
to contribute to glibc.

This project is a core library that is a key piece of the GNU/Linux
ecosystem. As such we follow some pretty strict rules that help keep
everything in order.

You can see the list here:
http://sourceware.org/glibc/wiki/Contribution%20checklist

The most important thing is copyright assignment:

If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Cheers,
Carlos.
