Sure and you're right, It's pretty obvious that we're understaffed. Supporting both Bukkit and Forge for multiple versions of MC is ambitious, especially for a mod as big as TC. Java programming really isn't that hard though, especially if you have lots of experience with the program you're working on .
If you're interested in trying some modding or know people that might be don't hesitate to send them our way. Fixing bugs can be hard but making changes and adding features can be quite easy (depending on what you want to do), once you get the basic skills it's really fun having control over minecraft and making it do what you want. I think even inexperienced people could be up to speed within a few weeks, or at least capable of making changes and adding features by themselves and experimenting. I'm programming most of the time anyway so I'm available for help.
*This just gave me an idea. How about we make a step by step tutorial on how to install the necessary stuff for modding MC, how to download the TC source code and set up the project in Eclipse, how to make a TC build and test it and how to contribute code to TC using a branch and pull requests on Github. Might inspire some people to become devs
