I've been pretty busy at work lately, so I haven't had time to do
much. I'm working on backporting some of the recent bug fixes to the
downstream Ubuntu package, so hopefully this should help with
0.48.3/0.49 pre-release testing. I'll also (finally) sort out the
upstream stable PPA in the near future, I hope.
>From my perspective, as an inkscape-dev novice, I find it pretty
difficult to get involved with the development of new features because
I'm not really familiar enough with the Inkscape source or gtk+.
Although there is a nice to-do list of simple coding tasks and a
development roadmap, it's possibly worth noting that there are
currently only six blueprints and ~25 unfixed bugs actually tied to
the 0.49 release. Personally, I'd find it much easier to get heavily
involved in the project if (a) it's clear exactly what is required for
each release and (b) there's an indication of how difficult each task
is. Perhaps, therefore, it would be worth making more use of
blueprints and targeting bugs/wishlist items to the forthcoming
release so that we can more easily see our progress, and the light at
the end of the tunnel. Also, some projects use a "bitesize" bug tag
to indicate the easy items. This might be more
maintainable/accessible than the current wiki page?
