I really like your idea, such a tool would help a lot to organize and
manage the work.
I've contributed for several years to the OOo project and I'm here
around the TDF/LibO one since its birth.
In this time, I've followed several mailing lists and projects and
though I know how much complex is a project of this kind, I really
feel a sensation of "wastage of resources" (please pay attention to
the quotation marks :-) when I try to understand how to contribute in
my actual limited time that, indeed, may be the same limited time of a
"average no-techie contributor".
I'd like seeing a central employment-office-like web structure where
the maintainers or already active contributors posts their "Requests
for help" with an estimated amount of time needed to complete the
requested tasks and where a wannabe contributor can get a "ticket" in
which he/she can clearly know what he/she has to do and who has to
contact once he/she has completed the requested task.
the system could be a bug tracker with a less technical UI than BZ, but
I think a wiki with a good template could be enough. Why do you say
It should be a web site as easy as possible.
Home page with 2 sections only:
Code developing contribution (Easy Hacks and other things) - Other
skills contribution (Documentation, art, marketing, ...)
A "employment ticket" should involve:
a) task requested: translation of a doc, fulfillment of a task,
creation of an artwork, ...
b) skills needed to complete the task: knowledge of a foreign
language, artistic skills, rhetorical skills for public speeches, ...
b) estimated time needed to complete such task: 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week,
c) contact email of the person "in charge" for the requested task.
This "system" should be less dispersive than a wiki and completely
oriented to get "more contributions per contributor's available time
