Hi,
I am trying to contribute to open source community and I am looking for a small java project. I tried Android, but the source code is huge (8.5 GB) and I have limited speed internet connection so it may take weeks to download 8.5 GB.

Any suggestions on any small open source java projects that I can download (may be 2-3 GBs source code that I can down load in a day or 2)

Thanks,
Kashyap

You can find many of these in places like Sourceforge community. You can go through the list of projects like this and pick a one. Of course size of source may wary based on the number of components etc...

You shouldn't base your decision about which project to contribute to on the size of the source code. You should base it on which project you are interested in, and want to spend considerable time on to improve it. Besides, a project with a GB of source code is huge, not small like you said you wanted.
