+ - Best Example of Good Open Source Code?

Submitted by

Anonymous Coward writes "As a burgeoning software developer, I regularly use GPL'd software. Occasionally, I even take a peek at the code. But looking at the source code for firefox or thunderbird, I'm left wondering what a software developer who wishes to support open source does in his spare time. Learning such a complex code base would take a big commitment for even the simplest patches. I'm interested in knowing which piece(s) of software with an open source license have a model for good development. What applications stand out for good design and coding practices, as well as easily read and maintained source code? If open source produces better code (and I think it does), what are the best examples of good code? (and perhaps some examples of the worst as well)"

It's hard to think of you as the end result of millions of years of evolution.
