surely a lot of people want to help with GIMP-1.3 but don't know where
to start. I'd like to point you to some places that list TODOs for

First, we have TODO.xml which is in CVS and available online at:


Then, there's Bugzilla which can be queried for bugs with the
1.3.x target milestone. That query at the moment gives this
nice list:

  52374  Some plugins lack a previewarea

One project I'd particulary love to see tackled is plug-in previews.
There should really be a generic preview widget that works for most
filter plug-ins. This an often requested feature and it would improve
user-friendliness a lot. There is some (pretty old) code that could
serve as a basis for development or at least give some ideas:


We also need some artists to draw nice images for our user interface.
We need new icons, we'd like a new image for the about dialog that has
some space to add credits (see also bug #58507). A new splash would be
nice, a more eeeky Wilber for the "Really Quit" dialog and so
on... Please note that we can use real alpha-transparent images now
and we should make use of this.

So if you want to help out, please speak up here so we can coordinate

Salut, Sven
