I close serveral requests for Guides at non 90 degree angles, because what
those cases really need is a perspective grid. There may be room to
implement a variety of grid functionality, such as a Hex Grid and a
Trawling through the various requests should turn up some tasks of the
right size for the summer of code. There will always be more file
formats people would like to see supported and they make for fairly well
contained projects which can be achieved in paralell to Inkscape.
I wish I were a student again so I could enter the Summer of Code :(
I'd settle for having a job which allowed me to work on Gnome though :)
