What can I do?

I am wondering what I can do to help with the development of GnuCash?
Let me start by introducing myself. I am almost finished obtaining my designation as a CGA (Certified General Accountant) here in Canada. Last night (Wednesday) I wrote my last exam in order to get my Bachalor's degree in Accounting Sciences (the degree is a requirement for obtaining a CGA designation). Assuming I passed this exam, I will be done - yeah!!!
I have been working in a public practice accounting firm for the last four years, and also do bookkeeping for several clients. As a result I am intimately familiar with the popular accounting software that's out there - mostly QuickBooks and Simply Accounting, although I have used some others.
Before I took up accounting, I did do some programming. Unfortunately, that was in the late 80s and early 90s, so I learned Basic, Pascal and Fortran. So, I don't think I can help much on the programming side. A goal of mine is to learn C++, but that will take some time. I have done some basic web page design, and I am familiar with HTML.
Why am I interested in GnuCash? Well, I have been using open source software for some time - Open Office, sound recording using Planet CCRMA's resources, and others. Anyway, since I've been taking from the community for a few years, it's about time I gave something back. Now that I'm finished school, I'm thinking that I might have some time to do that. And, since I am an accountant and this is accounting software, I am hoping that this would be a good fit.
So if you have something that I may be able to help with, please let me know.
