Im a newbie to openstack and would like to contribute to it.

Here are my questions.

  1. Is running a basic installation on Openstack is enough?

The best way to start is being helping (also learning) at and on mailing list. You will learn a lot and in some cases you'll help other people(now you are contributing to openstack community). When you have a deeper knowledge, you can start issuing, fixing or validating bugs. Also you can help translating the dashboard to other languages.

My answer for the first question:

With a basic installation you will have knowledge about how openstack works, but you won't have a deeper knowledge.

For the second question:

The best way is to be actively involved at mailing list (users, developers, etc)

You're embarking on a long journey and unfortunately there is no easy nor fast answer to your question. Start by reading the basic pages on the wiki, like how to contribute.
