How do I help OpenCV Developers autogenerate C wrappers for C++ code?

at this link http://answers.opencv.org/question/17546/opencv-will-drop-c-api-support-soon/

a opencv developer said this:

"At the same time in the long term C API may return to the OpenCV, so it can be used from the C code (e.g. low-level or embedded programming). But the plan is to autogenerate C wrappers for C++ code, as we do for Java and Python. This way C API will be always up-to-date, since it is generated from the C++ headers automatically. But this is a long-term dream, not for OpenCV 3.0, and if you want to work on that, please let us know (http://opencv.org/contribute.html)."

I would like to know how I can help Autogenerate the wrappers...I can spend many hours a day 7 days a week on this . but It seems there is no email link on that page but i think I should talk to somebody...so I would have the information I need so i can make precise worthwhile contributions and never risk sending duplicate code....How would I go about doing this? If they would can send me projects to do I can get them done

did you take a look, at how the other wrappers are generated ? they all call hdr_parser.py to extract the c++ signatures from the opencv module headers, then there's a backend for each language, like python , java or matlab , even
