<aol> Me too! </aol>

I very much second this. I often think I could contribute more if only I felt what I submitted would actually work. I have my own copy of E2, but that still isn't enough, because changes usually depend on other, existing, PM nodes.

The other thing that stops me is that it's often necessary to patch two or three nodes at once (like the display page and the htmlcode behind it), and I'm not sure how to make a group of patches. A patchball, if you will. Is writing about it in the wiki enough?

I'm still just an egg in so many ways...

    ...which you have full access to the source of. If you want more than that, then you are in a great position to write such (for example, see my other reply).
