It would be nice to have a place describing how to contribute, clearly linked from the top of the "Volunteer" page:
- How to checkout the code (may sound ridiculous but all repository hosting services from google code to bitbucket and github print the command required to clone a particular project on their homepage or source page)
- I have found a bug, what should I do? (aka "Trac bug search page is daunting")
- I have fixed a registered bug, what should I do?
- I have implemented a cool feature, what should I do, patchbomb tor-dev?
- Coding conventions, prerequisites (test should pass? anything else?)

FWIW, I would have patchbombed tor-dev mailing list :-)
