At this stage of development, we are very few people (which is good and
important in a way) working on the foundation of TYPO3 5.0. I therefore
have chosen to concentrate on the concepts and development instead of
dedicating myself to classic project mangement and assigning jobs.

Currently we have only few beginners jobs but that will change soon.  
who want to participate at this stage have to show a certain amount of
initiative and proactively seek for a job they are interested in. The
members of the current 5.0 team will gladly help answering questions  
help to get started and understand the architecture.

However, there is one thing I need a lot of help with quite soon and  
that is
testing. I'm currently working on a little package which I'd ask  
to install on their servers on different platforms and run the unit  
In addition I'll prepare some documentation which help you getting  
using the TYPO3 Framework and I'm highly interested in the real-world  
which ocur using it.

Finally, if you're a skilled PHP developer, there are some parts of  
TYPO3 5.0
you can work on (related to TypoScript objects, the MVC  
implementation and
others). However, you'll have to get familiar with the existing code and
documentation before you start.

BTW: You don't need the JavaBridge anymore to get 5.0 running and in  
fact we
don't have a working installation with JavaBridge and PHP6.
