I'm a Java programmer that is interested in contributing to Open
Street Map. I've already sent an e-mail to the JOSM mailing list, as I
think I would be the most productive there. I did subscribe to this
development mailing list as well, and I wanted to at least make an
introduction. I'm still in the process of learning about OSM and how
it works, but I thought I might list areas I am interested in:
 Parsing and conversion of different geospatial file formats, like
ESRI Shapefiles, Autodesk DXF files, WKT, and GML.
 Efforts to incorporate TIGER data into OSM.
 Tools that allow management of metadata and quality control for OSM.
If there is a particular need for programmer assistance in one of
these areas, please let me know.
