This page is intended as a list of features that we wish to see implemented in Pitivi, but are not currently claimed by the main developers (because they are too busy with other core issues). If you have been wanting to contribute to the Pitivi project but don't know what to contribute (in terms of code), this page is where you can tackle fun projects to get started.
Projects on this page are usually:
- Things that can be done with little or average knowledge
- Features, rather than bugs (because features are fun and rewarding to implement!)
- Things that are satisfying to accomplish and make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside
Note that the fact that someone is already working on it does not mean it is exclusive. You can team up and improve Pitivi even faster! Naturally, you can request help/mentorship from other developers. Do not hesitate to ask questions!
In order to be easily searchable and so that they show up on openhatch.org, Pitivi love bugs should be tagged with the Pitivi Love tag. Some of the Pitivi Love bugs do not appear on this wiki page. Implemented features/bugs are periodically removed from this page to keep it clean.
Adopt one of them today!
- For more information on how to get started, see the Main Page for various helpful links.
To claim one, send an email to the mailing list, edit this page, or ask nekohayo on IRC.
|1/5||UI test suite improvements||Feel like improving the quality of Pitivi but not comfortable enough to jump into the "real" code? Then you could work on expanding our Test suite! There's always room for improvement and more comprehensive testing, so think about corner cases/reproducible bugs that you'd like to see systematically tested, and write some test cases for them!||Test suite||Everybody!|
