Excuse me? Is this mail to me?
Anyway, nice to meat you here Xuan Ai. I'm new too:). I think you can
join the Chinese mail group too, as we can use Chinese in that mail
list. However, I applied for join the Chinese mail list two days ago,
but it has not passed yet:(. I think Chinese mail list's owner is
sleeping somewhere:)
In my opinion, if you don't have assigned task here, you don't need to
commit work hour here:), do anything you like. You can try different
features in fedora and you can read documents you are interesting in.
Report bugs if you like, you'd better to apply for a bugzilla account in
case you want to report bugs. 
If you are interesting in coding, you can join a project you like.
Someone signatured as JBG told me that a project named AutoQA is finding
resource. I'm studying it, I think I will join it when I'm ready.

Have fun!
