Community To-Do List

There are a number of important tasks needed by the community, whether they directly affect Inkscape (the program), this website, Inkscape documentation, or the community in general. If you have the skills needed, and enough time to do any of them, please contact the people indicated. If you know of any tasks that are needed, you can either post them yourself here, or contact the website team via the inkscape-docs mailing list to get it posted. Please note that this list has nothing to do with bugs or potential new features, which are handled on Launchpad (for Inkscape, for the website, for documentation), or with contributing to Inkscape in general. This is for jobs that definitely need doing.

We hope that posting these tasks publicly will help to get them checked off more quickly. When tasks are finished, we'll remove them and add more, so please check on this page from time to time, if you are of a mind to help.
