 GNOME in GHOP: Needs You!

We are three weeks into Google Highly Open Participation Program and the excitement just doesn't want to go away! On the GNOME side of the things it's been a pleasure to work with Leslie, of Google OpenSource Office fame, again and we sure look forward to more collaborations.

Now to the main point: guys and girls! We need more tasks. We currently have only 9 tasks open, with about 14 claimed at this time at this time and over 40 completed so far. (more GHOP stats). For Pango, I've got someone write a PangoCairo tutorial, another student writing PangoCairo code to generate a long-wanted image in the docs, and yet another student adding LCOV source code coverage report generation facilities to Pango.

So, you have long wanted tasks done that no one is looking at? You can use a couple new contributors to your project? Sure, go ahead and submit more tasks! Just write the task, we take care of the administrative stuff. We need to keep this program running til February!

Lots of thanks for keeping the program running smoothly so far goes to Vincent, Andre, Lucas, and Christian Kellner. Oh, and Leslie and her team on the Google side of the thing. Thanks Google OpenSource Office again!

Oh did I tell you how nice Ken Vandine was to put together GNOME Developer Kit together just in time for GHOP? If you want to start hacking on GNOME right away, nothing beats that VMWare image in ease of use, and peace of mind. He keeps making it more beautiful. Thank you Ken!
