Hi Andrea,


Timothy Pearson is the Big Kahuna.

There are some OpenSuse folks hanging out here. They likely will see your introduction and reply to you.

We do need people with a C++ background to help with the bug quashing. Right now Tim is in a big SVN-to-GIT conversion and file renaming effort. When that is completed he then will reopen the source tree and everybody who is able will start merging patches upstream and start hacking at the bugzilla.

We also need usability testing.

There is a lot going on right now. We're all anxiously awaiting Tim's work but we also are working toward reorganizing the web site and wiki. We tend to keep project information files and status in etherpad.

There is much to do if you want to jump in anywhere. :)
