hi there .
i have Experience in developing But i never participated in the opensuse
development.
so i want to know how can i start (if it bug fixing and on and on)

Everything related to opensuse development and security updates
revolves around the opensuse build service (obs).

So getting familiar with it is an important first step.

There is a psuedo tutorial at:
http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Build_Service_Tutorial

I'd pick a simple package on obs, branch it to your home project,
check it out to your local pc, make a trivial change, build it
locally, then submit your change back to your branch of the project
and watch it build on the build farm.

Once you have the basics down you can decide it you want to work on
bugs or bringing in new packages. If you need ideas, there are a lot
of packages that used to be in "contrib" that need someone to take
them over. They need to be moved to a devel project and then
submitted to factory for inclusion for the full distro.
