Hi Rajath,

A good place to start is our new volunteer orientation pages:

http://openoffice.apache.org/orientation/

There is a lot of background info there, but the core one for you is this
page on development:

http://openoffice.apache.org/orientation/intro-development.html

Getting a build environment working is a non-trivial task, so it would be
good to start on that early.

That same page has a link to some "easy tasks" in our Bugzilla issue
tracker.  Any of those would be a good place to start.

Regards,

-Rob
