Best ways to contribute to Arch Linux?

Hello,
People here were kind enough to answer a few of my posts about technical issues and I thought it was time to give back.
What do you think are the best ways for a beginner+ to contribute to the project (bonus points if I can learn something new)?

I was thinking about packaging a couple of AUR programs that already exist just not in the repos.

I am in a similar position. lahwasscz's link to the Getting Involved page is great. Packaging programs for the AUR is a great way to learn something new and contribute. Participating in the Newbie Corner and Installation boards is a great way to help people switch to Arch.
