The most important job of all! Sugar Labs is looking forward to your contribution. To begin, we strongly recommend orienting yourself with the Sugar Labs codebase. Be sure to visit and look at the bugs triaged "sugar-love" on the main page. These bugs are tasks that are simple enough for people to orient themselves with the code.

Please add your proposal to the wiki on a page called:
