Thought it might be a good time for an update on Summer of Code
proceedings. Essentially, my approach so far has been to tackle a bug
or two, as suggested by Richard way back in April, before moving on to
the interface redesign. I chose "[ 1243190 ] SVG Text: tRef Elements do
not work" to work on first because it should give me a hands on feel for
text in SVG and help me become familiar with certain aspects of the
Inkscape architecture. After this bug, I may choose another or dive
into the UI stuff; it depends on how long this one takes.
