Help is always appreciated. There are lots of available things that need
to be done. These include:
1) Improve the FamilyView, so that few mouse clicks are needed.
2) Be able to export a database to an ISO-9660 image that can be burned
onto a CDROM.
3) Implement a GNTP client (a peer-to-peer genealogy protocol)
4) Look at a GNOME 2 port
5) Improve reports
6) Be able to translate a set of locations onto a graphical map (so
you can see where in the world certain people came from).
7) Enhancing the relationship calculator to handle cultural/language
8) Enhance the Date/Calendar structure so that alternate calendars can
be plugged into the code, instead of the 4 hardcoded calendars
available now (Julian, Gregorian, Hebrew, and French Republican)
9) Provide a python interface to the graphviz layout algorithms
(www.graphviz.org) or provide some other graph layout mechanism.
10) Anything else that matches your interest.
