Announcement: This page is multifaceted
The reasons for it's creation are listed below

A list of tasks

Ongoing

Ideas

  • Python script repository
  1. Creating a python script repo
  2. UI for accessing scripts via Scribus (think this exists already)
  3. Spiffy 'ReadTheDocs' type of manual on how to code Scribus python scripts with screenshot examples for each script
  4. Perhaps use a github gist model: http://mattikus.github.io/pygist/
  • Think about migrating away from MantisBT
Reasons:
  1. Move away from the barred entry access of the bugracker (example: where users need to write for permission to open an account - unless there some psychology around why this is set up like this)
  2. Better captcha support
  3. Support different authentication schemes, oauth with gitbub, bitbucket, stackexchange etc..
  4. Integrated wiki in to bug tracker. (Separate from main site)
Possible solutions:
  1. Trac
  2. Github
  3. Gitlab
  4. The Bug Genie
  • Create a template repo where users can share and collaborate on templates
  • Utilitizing a Continuous Integration software like Jenkins
(ex: Gimp) The builds could be set to build bi-monthly and ideally would contain all supported platforms

Farfetched
