Read and Explore
If you have not yet done so, go to Nodelet Settings or your User Settings page and check the PmDev Nodelet item. You may also want to move it up to a convenient place near the top. This will expose two resources that can help you get an initial feel for how PmDev work gets done: the PmDev Nodelet, and the PmDev Wiki (link in the PmDev Nodelet).

Feel free to browse the various links in the PmDev Nodelet. As long as you don't hit "Submit" on any of the pages, you cannot harm anything. Take your time. Have fun.

As a side effect of entering your changes, the code node in question will appear on the Patch Lister (linked in the PmDev Nodelet).
