HN Discussion: How to contribute to an open source project on GitHub

My questions:
Any tips on how to begin interacting with open source projects on the copywriting and website development piece of things?

Could you elaborate a bit on how to get involved in the non-programming piece for us non-programmers, like designers and copywriters?
A few days earlier, there was only one reply to my HN question: Ask HN: Where can I find a simple (open source) Rogue-like to modify? However, the above article or discussion, led me to: Explore Github
http://adarkroom.doublespeakgames.com/
This is just two languages: CSS and javascript and available on github under explore. I already know a little CSS.

It's basically an add-on for python that lets you use python to generate websites

Perl, Python and Ruby are all very similar in a lot of ways..."
