I would really like to contribute in this task. Can you tell what exactly is needed to be improved?

Not as long as noone explains what a contributor is supposed to do here. See comment above by Saptak013.

@Glaisher, could you elaborate on what you meant by email notifications can be prettier ?

Hi. Sorry about the late reply. Currently the email notification sent for announcements of newsletters is the default message by Echo and look like this:

Subject: New notification at Testwiki

You have a new notification.

Summary here.

View new issue: <http://localhost/wiki/index.php/Main_Page>

View newsletter: <http://localhost/wiki/index.php/Special:Newsletter/1>

This is very ugly and should be made user-friendlier and made specific for newsletter notifications. https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Echo_%28Notifications%29/Developer_guide#Defining_a_notification and https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Echo_%28Notifications%29/Developer_guide#Email_notification has technical documentation for customizing this message. Hope this helps.
