Well, just by reading this list, I see I have a lot to learn from the

If Simon is not picking it right now, I could check with him on what
is needed, and go for it.
Just in case I can do it, and the Text Tool PDB ain ready, I'd like
to go for it.
I have also one other improvement I think I could work on, and this
would be great, so I might even postpone the above PDB stuff:
Postscript saving plug-in.
Actually, I have a similar list of things I believe I can implement in
it, more or less in this order:
- Add a "save one layer per page" option, with metadata on postscript
comments to allow reloading without loosing layer Info.
- Add a rough (or maybe full) transparency support for postscript
- Allow to save vectors as postscript paths, along with meta data to
get them back on GIMP
- Allow to save GIMP unstransformed text layers as postscript stroken
paths - this could allow a 150dpi image with text on it to get
press-ready, without great loss of information,as text would be
- Add color correction to PS save.
This last one would be the greatest of them all, but also, the one I
know less about how would be done. I imagine that with online help of
whoever will be working on the color-profiles functionality (either
on #gimp, or by e-mail), I can manage the postscript-side of it.
Also, to be added to the list of what I think is feasible:
- Add Vector Layers functionality.
(Simon, you there? )
And I would happily add them to the postscript save. :-)
