Gnome GNOME Shell is the new core user interface for GNOME 3. GNOME Shell 2.29.0 brings a lot of new features and improvements, the most noticeable being a new message tray showing notifications sliding into the bottom of the screen, a status area for past notifications, the ability to set your presence to the user status menu, switching the overview between a grid and linear view of workspaces.

Interesting - probably. But they're not really looking for external contributors - they simply use the language themselves to implement the vision they had for the Gnome Shell. Which is perfectly fine, but don't expect an extensive plugin API. Actually the gnomes are more looking at companies when it comes to input for their development, not individual volunteers (you can read that on Stormy's blog for example).

That's more the way of the other camp (or should I say Kamp?) where a javascript jam session contest is going on: http://dot.kde.org/2010/02/12/plasma-javascript-jam-session-contest
