I don't mind working on bugs at all.  So far most of my knowledge of ant
internals is centered around the JUnitTask and JUnitTestRunner classes but
I'm willing to learn.  Are there any particular bugs to work on or should I
just register for an account in the bug tracking system and try assigning
one to myself?

I also haven't been able to find Ant-specific coding standards/formatting
rules (other than the Ant Ivy project).  I'll take another look.
