The SWORD engine is quite low level and technical and needs special
knowledge in many areas (OSIS, binary format, versifications...).
Therefore many of us recommend first contributing to some frontend which
is easier especially for newbies. Please look at our application list
and spend time to find one which you would like to push forward. For
SWORD specific information see http://www.crosswire.org/wiki/Main_Page.
Each frontend project has its own web pages and developer teams. I'm a
BibleTime developer myself.
