Our currently proposed topics are here
You can propose your own, but that may require you to first get familiar
with GNUnet.

We are looking for contributors interested in the goals of the project
that ideally can see themselves contributing beyond GSoC.

I cannot think of an answer to this question off the top of my hand.
Reading the homepage and should give
you a good idea :)

You are welcome to contribute outside of GNUnet with anything you want
to do. From website maintenance, documentation, translations,
programming or simply maintaining a node there are a
lot of ways to contribute outside of a clear cut project.
You can also always build your own software on top of the stack.

We do have a monthly meeting on the first Sunday of the month 20:00
(Berlin/Rome) through mumble on
If you want you can join us next time.
