Help them with writing code for bugfixes (there may be many patches sent but maybe some are just aweful and you have a better way to fix that specific bug, or you can just send a patch for another bug, since there will never be a patch for every bug known).

Otherwise there is perhaps translation, documentation, artwork, etc. There are a lot of stuff you can do to help. If not for Gnome than some other project. So far I haven't seen a single open-source project that has too *many* contributors. Though I see a lot of people with good ideas and whom are very keen to point out what the developers do wrong.

To me personally that just seems like a big waste of energy and maybe talent as well. A shame.
