Open tasks / where to put workforce?

#1 Post by vinzv » Tue Jan 31, 2017 6:42 pm

I'm currently looking where and how commit some work into MX.
My skills mostly consist of:
- graphics design
- website works
- translating (already did some work on MX)

Digging through the forum didn't give a final answer so maybe any of the devs team could point out where to look? Is there some sort of to do list or even a project management tool?

(I had asked for tasks a month ago but wanted to give that topic a broader audience to maybe awake interest of others willing to help too.)

We don't have such a thing, but it is a desideratum. Thanks for bringing it up, it will spur us to get working on a solution.

My hunch is that you can't go wrong with beautiful new collections of wallpapers in an easy to install package.

Maybe a better default theme for MX-Clocky than the one I Frankensteined together, too.

We would appreciate more help for the User Manual translations. The MX-16 Manual is currently available in Russian, Italian and English.
Forum members are working on French, Portugese and Spanish translations. Have had a few enquiries about other languages but nothing
definite has eventuated.

Can I help somehow? I'd step up as some sort of project manager if that's needed to keep workload off the dev's backs.

Meant to get back to you on this, sorry. We are in the midst of setting up a Wish List site for the Dev Team to review, and I will try to get some feedback from you on it once it is operational.

Definitely appreciate the suggestion and, as Arnold said: "...I'll be back."
