There are many ways of contributing to DPDK.
Apart features and fixes, I'd suggest these 4 activities:
- Bug reporting is critical to satisfy all use cases
- Patch reviews are very important and help to accelerate their integration
- Clean-up (e.g. remove doxygen warnings, merge linux and bsd eal, etc)
PS: inline replies are preferred in general
