Thanks everyone.

I've attempted to make the smallest non-trivial fix I could find to dip
my toe in the water:


A few questions:

Should I be able to log into bugzilla using my ASF credentials? It
doesn't seem to accept them, but obviously the account I've been
reporting bugs as previously doesn't let me edit the assignee, etc.

Do we have a convention for cross-linking bugs and commits? The way I
was taught to do it is to put the revision number of the fix on the bug
(which I see has turned into a convenient hyperlink) and the full URL of
the bug being worked on in the commit message.

How do people usually work with the project? For this trivial fix I
worked directly off an SVN checkout, but I assume git-svn is the way to
go in order to allow public review of branches / pull requests via
github when working on bigger changes?
