Default am I ready to step into Gentoo?

hi all,

it's since about 6 years I am using (loving) Gentoo!
I wish I could be a developer, but I have no idea where do I fit well,
and which are the g.o needs.

looking at the bugtracker you can find random enhancements submitted by
myself [1], recently: #220162 (source navigator NG3), #219519
(blambot-fonts), #219324 (dev-tcltk/gnocl), #190225
(sys-process/daemon), #185788 (keyfuzz)... also #173347 a proposal of
making a setpci init script [2]

my computer-related hobbies (or I should say time-killers!) are Tcl
(scripting language) and Pure-Data (multimedia dataflow environment). I
regularly use Pd to create audio/video apps, and Tcl for everything else
that doesn't fit Pd, I've also developed a Tcl-Pd loader, that allows to
code externals for Pd in Tcl.

see my Pd page at [3].

perhaps that's the category I should belong to...(?)
I keep occasional contact with Tcl developers, so I could bring some
love to the Tcl/Tk Gentoo herd (yes, I am a Tcl/Tk fan, as you can see
on my wikipage at [4])
I've also set up an overlay (pd-overlay, [5]) and used to develop
together with ColdWind (actually a Gentoo dev) ebuilds for EVERY pd

today I just bought a dark Gentoo t-shirt from CafePress to support
Gentoo foundation, and to spread the Gentoo word here and there

about my life: I work part-time in a big telecommunications company as a
system engineer / sysadmin, my specific task at the moment is to
develop/package linux platforms for Data Warehouse systems (running on
Oracle :S) and Business Intelligence platforms. I'll get a Computer
Science Engineering degree soon...
if I have to devote some time to Gentoo, surely I'll do it during the
work hours, since Linux is the 99.999999% of my work!

so what's going to be my next step into Gentoo? perhaps finding a
mentor? ColdWind would you...? any one else?
