Everyone starts like that.
The docs are designed to be read and used even by non developers. The
point of this is to have more developers. The only way to have more
developers and contributors, is to offer resources for training. By
being able to compile software you are already quite far ahead on the
journey to be a contributor. If you would contribute the software in the
packages defined that is already a good step. If you are willing to
maintain the things you use for yourself also for others that is the
best way to begin contributing.
You are allowed to try and train here.

It's such a too big word to be used. I'm currently stuck at libdazzle, a dependency of Epiphany. It seemed the problem is with a compiler flag is wrongly defined. It will fail to build with this flag on. But I have no knowledge with the Meson build system they are using, so I posted here asking anyone interested or have time please have a look at it.
