The only way you will build confidence is if you try playing around with
things you don't understand. That is the real way to learn. You might
get flamed every now and then, but who cares.

In fact, here is my first (and only) patch to RPM. About three years ago
when i didn't understand buildsystems at all (I still don't btw). I just
submitted a patch which changed all <x.h> to <x/y.h>. I got "politely"
rejected but felt like an idiot. I was in my first semester then
