I guess it needs to be said, but feel free to help out with development!

Grab git and/or sourcetree, check out the source code, check the issues and make edits, and create a pull request. It's not terribly difficult to get set up for that, and anyone without any knowledge can tackle some of the "good first issues" marked on our issue tracker, like Issue #1140 (UXP)

Is there a high-level description of how the UXP source code is structured?
Like, where to find components dealing with certain features or something like that. Doesn't have to document everything in details.
I looked around the core when I was developing an extension (I was looking for a certain API and ended up exploring the xref), and it's hardly obvious where to go to find something when starting out.
This is actually a problem most programs have, so it'd be awesome if UXP could have something like that.
