No, not inappropriate per se, but given your motivation, you may want to
post (and subscribe) to matplotlib-devel instead/also. Also, if you "dig
around" at the main site--matplotlib.org--I think you'll be able to find a
history of the package (if not, pretty sure Wikipedia has one), and
definitely contributor guidance (e.g.,
https://matplotlib.org/devel/gitwash/development_workflow.html?highlight=history
and
https://matplotlib.org/devel/gitwash/maintainer_workflow.html?highlight=history,
both of which I found by entering "history" into the home page search box;
however, both of those results are "advanced," so dig around more for "how
to get started" and "style and documentation guidlines"). Happy hunting,
and thanks for being interested in contributing!

Please define "less experienced." Why do you ask?

Also, just to clarify/be sure of your meaning: new to matplotlib, or new to
wanting to contribute to it? (If the former, you should probably gain some
(quite a bit?) experience using the package before you consider
contributing to it.)

I blogged about some of my experience of getting acclimated to matplotlib
for my summer of code two years ago: http://story645.github.io/

From this year, Katie's is at

https://github.com/katierose1029/matplotlib_work_blog
And Harshit's is https://patniharshit.github.io/
