      If you don't already have a favorite IRC client to use for joining the #liferea channel, you can use Freenode's convenient webchat interface: http://webchat.freenode.net/

      Check example feeds in your locale...

      Have a look at the default feeds in your locale. Are they interesting? Are they working? Do you have new ideas...

      • Tip:

        Discuss documentation, testing, webmastering, and/or publicity.

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        We need people to download version 0.4.5 and make sure the frobulator still frobulates correctly.

  • Q: What's a good bug for a newcomer to tackle?

      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.

  • Q: What is a bug or issue with Liferea that you've been putting off, neglecting, or just plain avoiding?

      A good Download Manager...

      Liferea is missing a good download manager. This is due to the complexity of the topic and due to missing resources. We need someone to implement one :-)

      • Examples:

        I don't know how to get started with internationalizing my app.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.

      • Note:

        If this issue was formally filed on the web, be sure to include the URL.

About Liferea

(logo)

Liferea (Linux Feed Reader) is an aggregator for online news feeds. There are many other news readers available, but these others are not available for Linux or require many extra libraries to be installed. Liferea tries to fill this gap by creating a fast, easy to use, easy to install news aggregator for Gtk/Gnome.

from the profile of Lars Windolf (lars_lindner)

The code is mostly written in C.
