>I would happy to donate some time to developing Twisted. However  since the only Twisted code I have really looked at is the reactor, I am not sure where I can contribute. Off-hand documentation is a safe bet. Perhaps you provide suggestions and I can figure out whether I can do it, when, and how much time I can devote?

http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/query?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&keywords=~documentation&order=priority shows all of the open tickets with the "documentation" keyword.  So there's a lot to choose from, many are about the reactor.  There's also one, #1009, about deferredGenerator/inlineCallbacks.  I think you're somewhat familiar with those?

It's also certainly the case that there are tickets open for reactor problems, so if you feel comfortable with that part of Twisted, there's plenty to contribute to.
