I've been playing around in Stendhal lately and was wondering if I could
join your project team for Arianne. I am studying Java at the moment in
college and would like to be a part of a team to get some experience. Would
I be able to join and start helping on some of these bugs?

Nice to meet you. We always welcome help with fixings bugs and implementing
new features - previous experience of Java isn't even always necessary, but
if you are studying it already that is great.
What you've already done is pretty much right - looking for a bug you like
the look of and then submitting a patch. Please feel free to come to talk to
the developers in #arianne on irc.freenode.net to discuss which may be the
best bugs or features to work on so that you're assured your efforts are
heading in the right direction. If it happens that you're around when most
of us our sleeping, we can still reply and you can read the channel logs
later (check the channel topic for details.)
Another idea, since you have played the game, is to create a new quest. It's
a good introduction to some of the core Stendhal code. We have a quest
contribution guide - from the ideas stage through discussion with the team,
coding and testing at
